When my son Kell was diagnosed with celiac disease a few years ago, I assumed he would be doomed to a life of eating really bad, and really expensive, gluten free bread. 🍞😩 While obviously not the WORST problem one could face, it was still a rather depressing thought.

If you’re in dire need of AA batteries, but can only find AAA batteries, you can make them work in a pinch with just a bit of tin foil. Place the AAA batteries into the device, then wad up a couple of small pieces of tin foil. Wedge the piece of foil in to fill the gap on the positive end of the battery. (This should be seen as an emergency fix, and should not be used for any extended period of time. But in a pinch it could help a lot!)
