My state-of-the-art Firefly Music Festival wristband, equipped with RFID technology, came in the mail today. Okay, let me see if I understand - once it’s on my wrist, I can’t take it off. The festival lasts for three days. So … if I put it on the first day, what do I do if I want to take a shower the next morning? I guess it’s okay to get it wet, right? What if it rains? Am I the only nerd who worries about little details like these? Or here’s an even scarier thought - am I the only nerd who plans to shower at least once during this thing?
Update, July 26 - Well, my high-tech Firefly wristband promptly broke, no more than 30 seconds after I’d put it on. No matter, they gave me another one, and I’m pleased to say it was, indeed, waterproof. What truly makes me a nerd, as my friend who came with me to Firefly pointed out, is the fact that I actually read the instructions.
