I am not technologically savvy, people. (I say things like, ‘the twitter,’ instead of just, ‘twitter.’)
Hubby was trying to show me how a smart phone works. He pressed a button, and this lady’s voice said, ‘what would you like to do?’ Hubby said I could ask any question.
What I really wanted to ask was, ‘what does it mean if my poop is green?’ (It was probably just that I ate too many bowls of Crunch Berries cereal). The lady in the phone was probably expecting a question like, ‘where is the nearest Target?’
Hubby asked the first question. He is a nerd. If you are a nerd, too, then you know what the whole ’42’ thing is about.
I am not as elegant as my husband. I asked the second question. ‘What are you wearing’ just seems like the natural thing to say when you are on the phone with someone you are not related to. What does it mean if her answer turned me on a little? The lady in the phone is like a sexy nerd, my kryptonite! Oh my gosh. I think I may now understand how people get robot sex fetishes.
P.S. I had to ask:
Okay, this answer was pretty boring. Robot crush over. The magic is gone. But at least she is still trying. Maybe I should work on this relationship.
