today in voice input

So, I was going to work this morning, and I ended up stepping in an unexpected puddle. I hoped my socks would stay dry (I hate spending the day with wet socks — I’m sure this is not unusual).

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.

    Hahaha! Sounds like the beginning of a story to me. 🙂 (And that’s a brilliant idea.)

  4. It will be fine with me if somebody should happen to “borrow” the idea, of course, since I never write about that sort of modern technology, and I intend to keep on that way. 🙂
