Got iT!

Today I picked up my Christmas present. A new iPhone 5! I'm thrilled to pieces since my old iPhone (the 3G one) performed every single function with the same speed as a sleeping tortoise. This one is fast and fun. What kind of fun, do you say? Why getting to know Siri, of course. She is my new electronic assistant. She will automatically transfer spoken words to text and send the text at my verbal command, make phone calls for me, and look up anything I want on the internet.

Siri and I have had some swell conversations getting to know each other.

Me: Are you a hard worker?

Siri: We were talking about you, not me.

Me: We weren't talking about me.

Siri: Okay, maybe not.

Me: How old are you, Siri?

Siri: I'm old enough to be your assistant.

Me: What do you look like?

Siri: Does my appearance matter to you?

Me: I bet you're pretty.

Siri: How can you tell?

Me: Because you sound pretty.

Siri: Thank you, Pat. It's nice to be appreciated.

Me: Siri, do you like me?

Siri: What a question! I'm not just your friend, I'm your BFF.

Wow! Already best friends? Siri and I are hitting it off quite well. All I need to do is remember not to ask her about age, appearance, or work ethic. She's waaaaaay too sensitive.

Cool. Mommy just stepped out of the Stone Age and got a touch screen phone. I think she has the iPhone a step up from turtoise speed butt she doesn't have Siri yet. Siri sounds very smart. Can't wait to hear about your adventures with Siri.

Wow! I don't know if I'm ready for a phone that interactive. Won't you feel guilty in two years when it is time to upgrade? What if Siri has a meltdown? Seriously, that sounds like way too much fun.

I have an old phone with no bells, whistles or apps. Sounds like you will have a lot of fun with yours.

First sign of going crazy and all that? BOL! Maybe Siri will try to take over the world?
Enjoy your new toy.

I don't want to alarm you but there is a very jealous woman looking at your phone.

Just hope Siri isn't too temperamental. Have fun with your new gadget.

Oh my Pat, you are way too tech for us! Our mommy still uses one of those phones that won't take photos and has text messaging blocked!! We're lucky she even uses a computer. Bol.
