Recently, in the office, while passing by a co-worker, I held up my hand for the purpose of exchanging a high five. He ignored me and kept walking.
This was a dark and traumatic moment.
And it's one that I could have escaped if only I had Albert Cohen's patented apparatus for simulating a high five. It is made specifically for solitary people in need of some high five action. Cohen writes in his 1993 patent paperwork that his machine is designed for sporting events, but it's clearly applicable in all of the other many high five events that constitute the typical adult's day.
