Are you smarter than your phone?!!

Yes, as in smarter than a 5th grader?!  I am going around and around with my smart phone, though grateful I am to have it and treasure all the wonderous things it can do!  But truthfully, if it weren't for having 3 teenagers at home to bail me out!!  constantly show me how to use it, I'd be so lost!  Okay, who am I kidding .... even my 7 year old son has it mastered!  Doh!

Then there's me ;) 

What has me so perplexed it even though I have adjusted the auto correct,  It's NOT correct!  And I have learned to LOOK BEFORE I LEAP as it pertains to Swype.   I think I'm a pretty nice person.  And I certainly don't say bad words!! 

But my phone is a very bad girl.  It says bad words.  I don't.  It does!  I tell the truth and nothin' but the truth and this phone is naughty!  Naughty, naughty, naughty!!  Let me give you some examples {well, the ones I can actually post in public.} 

* I said to a blogger who's scrapbook layout was just breathtaking - "Nice layout,"  My phone said "Nice rack."  {Glad I caught that one, how embarrassing.  Especially since I was blurfing and didn't know her!

* "She looks like a princess!"  Phone said "She looks like a pineapple!" ooooof.

* Hubby:  "at the store - need anything?"  I typed "I need butter", which promptly told me "I need beer."   It was a good day, I promise!  But the theme song of Daniel Powter's "Bad Day" starting playing in my head .......

* and probably my personal favorite to my friend inviting me to breakfast,
"I have to be .... " which my phone told her "I hanged the beef".  Yep, she called me on that one - being that she knows I'm a vegetarian and just HAD to know what that one meant.  I had no words.   Yikes.  She told me to tell my husband to take my phone away.  Not my fault! :)~

Anyway, it's Friday and that means Fun-day!  My dh is coming home tomorrow after a week long absense with our baby girl who's performing with a big name international choral Conductor and she made it to All-State Florida choir!  She's there with out 1,200 other Floridian students who made it to the "top" and they are proudly representing our sunshine state! So proud of her and all the singers!

No special reason for this card - I had the image colored up and thought I should put it to paper :)  This adorable lemonade image is from Pixie Dust Studios :)  Have a fabby blessed weekend and I'll be back this weekend with the Darlings Challenge :) x0x0

Big hugs,
Bigger Blessings!
