|Technology is beast!
I'll start by saying that I'm not a huge fan of technology. I'm still stuck in the 20th Century and learn only what I need to when it comes to laptops and cell phones.
However, my oldest son is somewhat of a techno-geek. Sometimes I wonder if he's really mine. Then I remember the labor pains--and the fact that Mr. McKenzie is also a bit of a geek!
For the past few months, my number one son has been saving up for an iPod. Christmas money, birthday money, allowance, and the salary he earns from a job with his dad (which he's been frequently fired from, and then subsequently rehired) recently enabled him to make his dream purchase.
One of his favorite iPod features is Siri, which according to Apple "is the intelligent personal assistant that helps you get things done just by asking." In other words, you can ask questions like what's today's weather forecast, where's the nearest gas station, etc., and she answers. Pretty useful technology, right?
|The Mysterious Siri
Siri: Surprisingly, I have never tasted chocolate.
Son: Siri, do you like pizza?
Siri: I like whatever you like.
Son: Siri, you suck!
Siri: I am still here for you.
So here's my story idea: What would happen if a guy fell in love with Siri? Hey, it's only fiction, and stranger things could happen! What's something a little strange that's sparked your imagination?
Thanks for visiting and have a great week!
