The Language of Love


True story: So last night, while in the process of getting some work done, I was having a nice little text conversation with a very attractive young woman I know. Nothing dirty or overly flirtatious, just -- nice.

As the back-and-forth wrapped up, she let me know that she was heading off to bed.

And so I typed into my phone, "Sleep well," then followed it with a somewhat innocent "xoxo."

I was a millisecond away from hitting the send button when, thank God, I happened to look down and see what was actually in the text she was about to get.

Turns out my phone didn't recognize "xoxo" which means that the auto-correct feature kicked in and turned it into a word it did recognize and I suppose closely associated with "xoxo."

The message read: "Sleep well. Cock."

I'm not sure what this says about me, but it's probably not good.

Suddenly very relieved that my mother doesn't text.

The best part about this is you could have sent it, then proved it was your phone to blame, not you. Your phone has the dirty mind, and you are innocent!

Missed opportunity, really.

In T9, 'cock' and 'anal' are the same.

Also, what happened to you is why I turn off the auto-correct function.

My xoxo rages on, my xoxo rages on;
Blood rains down from an angry sky!
My xoxo rages on, my xoxo rages on...


That takes the flow right out of it, doesn't it?

What it says about you, much to your chagrin, is that you are someone who gives a damn about other people and what they think of him. Otherwise, you would have hit 'send' and snickered.

I just laughed my spleen out. You owe me a new spleen.

Chez, You should have hit send. Who knows? It may have been answered with a Yes. Nothing ventured....

Yet again...sitting quietly at the dog bark when I suddenly burst out laughing unexpectedly. Awesome!

Would have been funnier if you'd sent it

Alanna said...

Well it wouldn't have been the first time you sent me that, you know.

Alanna said...

**For the record, although I am very attractive and awesome in every way - I was just joking!** :)

Chez said...

Sorry, hon -- different attractive young woman. And I don't write the word to you. I just send you pictures.

When I was texting somebody a Gmail address with my iPhone yesterday, it auto-corrected "email@gmail.com" to "email@flail.com" twice, I checked and it does it every time.

Can that even BE an accident, that Apple auto-corrects any Gmail email address to Flail.com ??
