I have now entered the Smart phone world. With the two $50 rebates we got back from Don’s ‘free’ phone and mother’s ‘free’ phone, I got a Smart phone for ‘free.’ I don’t know how that works, exactly, which should be the first clue that I don’t belong in the Smart phone world.
The beginning of a love-hate relationship.
My new phone has an auto-correct feature when typing a text message. It’s great. I love it when my large fingers hit the wrong key and the misspelled word is corrected automatically for me.
On the other hand, I hate it when I am trying to type a proper noun and this confounded thing keeps changing the spelling. There’s a story behind how I learned this was happening and how I learned to proof-read my text message before clicking “send.”
When we arrived in Norman today and got all parked and set up in the RV parking section of the county fairgrounds, I texted my daughter, LaNae:
“Yay! We are within walking distance of Braum’s!!!” (An Oklahoma-based ice cream and hamburger establishment.)
LaNae read: “Yay! We are within walking distance of Brain’s!!”
LaNae’s reply: “Great, Mom! You better start walking now!!”
