My brother-in-law Tom gave me a generous gift for Christmas, an Apple Watch Series 5. Tom is a techie kind of guy. He once worked at an Apple Genius Bar and got a promotion for thinking on the job. I once worked at a bar and was fired for drinking on the job.

Tom always wants the latest cutting-edge technical wizardry, which explains the six different air fryers in his kitchen. When he bought the Series 6 Apple Watch, he graciously gave me his Series 5. He has sent me hand-me-down stuff before, which is why I have eight different iPhones in my desk drawer.
