A Little Sunday Humour with Clips of Conversation

You might be a little tired and bleary-eyed if you forgot to account for Daylight Saving Time, the loss of a full hour of sleep as the clocks sprang forward overnight (Geek Strikes Again As Daylight Returns). So here is a light post — good grief, no pun intended, really! — with some humour for your Sunday reading.

Number 1

Autocorrect: there when you don’t need it, but not when you do!

I wrote this text to notify my daughter, living on her own at a different address, about a letter or bill that had arrived for her from her cell phone provider in my mailbox.

Number 2

I’m dark blue. This discussion was precipitated (yikes, another unintended pun) by a long stretch of early winter’s dark, dismal, cloudy days. When the sun came out fleetingly one morning, we feigned ignorance as to its identity. You forget what a sun looks like after such a long time, you know?

* You may be pleased to know that the iPhone 4 (not 4s) that I’d had since June 2012 has finally been replaced on March 7 by a new phone. I am now also on the Android system.
