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.
