Ever try to teach an old dog new tricks? It’s a frustrating push and pull, a tough battle of wills trying to get the other to conform.
When Bissoon’s ancient radio blows a fuse, he brings it to town to look for a replacement fuse. Except the shopkeeper doesn’t have the necessary part, it simply doesn’t exist anymore.
He offers an alternative, a programmable digital radio with built-in clock and better sound quality. Bissoon balks, unimpressed by the upgrade. That radio has been with him for 20 years now and he doesn’t want the modern option.
But the secret to successfully teaching new tricks lies in finding the right treat. With the right incentive, the impossible just might become the possible.
