Then I had a thought. I have a drawer at work, and I could leave a pair of dry socks there for emergencies. And I knew I needed to make a note or I’d never remember.
When I’m walking around, the easiest way to make quick notes is by using voice input on my phone. I say it and the phone writes it. So, I took out the phone and said, slowly and clearly, “Socks to work.”
Then I glanced at the screen and it said, “Sucks to work.”
I was tempted to say, “You’re a phone — how would you know?” But I was a little leery about what might happen next, so I didn’t.
