One day last week, while trying to decide if she needed a jacket, Lu hollered across the house, "Hey Dad, ask your phone what the weather is gonna be like today!" Jason did not blink. He picked up his phone and said to it (without irony), "What will the weather be today?"
AND IT TOLD HIM. Oh, and when I tried to refresh his memory about this moment, he did not remember. Because he talks to his phone more than he talks to me. Only with clearer diction and more patience.
These are very modern problems we are dealing with.
I am going to train Milo to ask the iPhone to change his diaper, sketching the final dark scene in my semi-non-fictional play "Siri Poppins."
