Hiding = Using


Difficult to Use and Hide

Every night i add to my Gratitude List, which i keep on a diary app on my phone. Tonight i wrote i’m grateful that “i no longer hide from my problems.”

The funny thing was, my phone autocorrected “hide” as “use”.

Sometimes my smartphone really is.

About Al K Hall

Like a battered drinker or a punch drunk boxer, i am here for another round. For those of you who don’t know me, i’m a semi-professional writer on the rocks and a non-practicing alcoholic (if after 30 years of practicing, you still can't do something well, it's best to just give it up). For those of you who do know me, thanks for stopping by anyway and where’s the ten bucks you owe me? Welcome to my Bar None. A hole in the wall where we can hang out and trade the kind of stories you swap only when you’ve had one too many and either can’t find your way home or are afraid to. Hell, it’s cheaper than therapy and plus the pictures are prettier. Here we’ll crack open bottles and jokes and ‘last call’ are the only dirty words you’ll never hear. Pull up a stool and make yourselves at home. http://about.me/AlKHall

  1. It makes me wonder who programs auto correct. I was typing a reference to Bruno Mars. The auto correct kept typing Heinous in place of Bruno. It wasn’t that far off Im my musical opinion. If this is artificial intelligence we should all be very afraid.

    • What a trip! Loved the Heinous Bruno switch. Sometimes it seems the gods of the autocorrect are trying to send us subliminal messages!

      Keep coming back,

      Al K Hall

  2. LOL – those pictures!

    Too funny about the wise smartphone.

    I’m glad you no longer feel the need to hide.
