What are words for?
I am quite adept at text messaging. I have had conversations via text which have been more informative and meaningful than some dates that I have endured. To further enhance my text Goddess demeanour, I never use those funky short terms so common amongst "kids today". Full spelling and correct grammar is a must. As a result, over time I have had to teach my phone a number of words and have increased its dictionary
Rob has found that he too must constantly add words to his phone's dictionary. But his phone doesn't seem to want to learn a few words - despite him having saved them numerous times. Apparently it has a problem with "Kilda", as in St Kilda, his suburb. Perhaps his phone is a touch anti-Semitic, or homophobic?
Strangely, last night I found I had to teach my phone the word "bastard". How could I have had this phone for so long and not had the need to write that word until now? More curiously, people seem to think it odd that I have noted that the same letter combinations are required for "coal", "cock" and "anal". And I know this because of the number of times I have had to cycle through the options to get the word I am looking for.
Make of that what you will people.
