Cuts Like a Knife

Little kids abuse band aids like some adults abuse cigarettes, scratch tickets, or credit cards. Don't need 'em, but you gotta have 'em.
My older son has a legitimate finger injury but he's got band aids over two injury-free digits. His younger sibling has one finger covered in an effort to keep up with his older brother. He doesn't even know what a band aid is, he just knows that he wants one.
Tomorrow they'll be magically removed and they'll be pleading to have them reapplied. Perhaps snowmen this time instead of santas.

song: Cuts Like a Knife • artist: Bryan Adams
