This explains why I’m always tripping up.
Always too much of one,
And not enough,
Of the other.
I’m either completely lost in thought,
Being overwhelmed by emotions.
P.S I got out 8 weeks ago today :).
Mum don’t leave your Facebook logged in on my iPad…
My eldest son got an I-Pad today.
Well that ‘s a big YAY all in itself !
He’s been wanting one for ages and I’ve yet to join an Autism Parent support group where at least a half a dozen or more parents haven’t raved about how well their son/daughter has been doing with their lovely new little digital genies.
So we brought this miraculous object home and my middle son began setting it up for my eldest son to use.
He’d programmed his brother’s name into Siri‘s settings, unbeknownst to my eldest son.
So the first time my son said hello to Siri, she said hello back to him…. USING HIS NAME!!!!
Well his face lit up and he thought it was magic.
Perhaps those parents at the Autism support groups hadn’t been on drugs after all when they’d spoken with such passion about how Siri has worked wonders for their children.
Anyway…. fast forward a couple of hours and after asking Siri an endless string of illogical questions just to:
A) Hear her digitized female voice say his name over and over again.
B) Giggle at her pronouncement of “Sorry I do not understand”. A phrase which he hears regularly in real life and so is extremely familiar with.
C) Find out where the best place to hide a dead body would be in any given location….. Okay…. Okay…. now you can blame my middle son for that one.
He started it…
Oh and just in case you are wondering Siri recommends swamps as the best locations for the disposal of dead bodies in just about every known location.
I wonder if the good folks at Apple have anything to hide? If so, I suggest checking all swamps first and foremost.
Anyway given Siri’s affinity for swamps, my son soon grew tired of this game.
So he then asked her….. (well her female digitized voice)….. if she would marry him…..
To which Siri replied….
“It’s nice of you to ask….. but it’s not for me to decide”……..
Her response was followed by an instant look of rejection.
“Don’t worry, “my middle son told his older brother immediately… “It’s not up to Siri decide, it’s up to the Motherboard.”
He then looked at me and with a big smile on his face and said ……
“See it’s always up to the mother unit, even in the digital realm….. you simply can’t escape them”.
Not to mention that you’ve probably engaged in some form of invisible particle piracy.
And you’ve quite likely fractured the time, space, continuum by doing so.
TV is just not meant to watched this way.
Isn’t i it?
What would River say???????
Okay, Okay, I admit it,
