Siri: Make a U-Turn.
This is me, on the road, lost, and British Siri telling me make a U-Turn. I’m on the highway. No legal turn around spots anywhere. British Siri keeps telling me make a U-Turn at the next blah, blah, blah. NO! Siri, there is no place to turn around. It is all illegal! See the signs?! Siri, in his curt and no reasoning voice continues to tell me to make a U-Turn. And this may have been when I lost it.
How often do you wish you had a Siri to tell you what to do with your life? When to turn, stop, make the right choices? Then when Siri keeps telling you over and over that you are wrong, turn around, how often do you keep going in defiance because Siri can’t be right. It is your life?
Siri reminded me of my Uncle Ted despite the fact that Siri was the opposite of Uncle Ted. Siri wanted me to do what it said, when it said, and take the U-Turn. My Uncle Ted taught me how to play chess but each time he set up pieces he would ask me what do I want to do? Time over and over, Uncle Ted would stomp me at chess. I complained I never won. He once replied to my complaint, you don’t really win at life. I would still be upset over the game but he would coax me back into another game and another, and the ever present question of what are you going to do with your life?
Time went on and I never really figured it out the answer until I was at his funeral and my Aunt asked me. “Lisa, what are you doing with your life?” I had done the school, the degrees, the family, the jobs, and then out of nowhere I had the right words. "Whatever I want to do." Well, Uncle Ted, that is what I am doing today. What I want to do. Checkmate.
British Siri, was right too. I was going in the wrong direction. Not just down the road and lost but not where I needed to be in my life. Uncle Ted had been right too. But right now I was the wrong one and this happens in life. Sometimes despite everything you know and everything you have been taught you still go down the wrong road. Siri had a solution. Make a U-Turn at blah, blah, blah.
One legal U-Turn later, I was going back the right direction, and off on I-75 to Cincinnati. Heart skipping a beat at hearing Siri say Cincinnati fairly good English and knowing I was doing what I wanted to do.
