For some unknown reason my phone thinks that the word “around” should be “aroused” so I texted my older sister the other night and meant to ask “will you be around Monday night?” my phone fixed it to “Will you be  aroused Monday night?” that should make for some awkward family time come Monday night.  I have no clue why aroused would even be in my phone’s vocabulary…

ETA: I’ve also liked things on Facebook by accident, it’s embarassing isn’t it?

One weekend I went skiing in Minnesota with friends. I borrowed my mom’s camera and took lots of pictures. I loaded the pictures to my facebook but forgot to deleate them from the SM card. A few years later at Christmas my brother got my mom a digital picture frame and put her SM card in the frame. We were all sitting at the dinner table getting ready to enjoy dinner and my mom wants to look at the pictures and remenisce. We’re sharing memories of vacations, holidays, weddings, my kids as babies and toddlers when all of a sudden a picture of me and a bunch of people half naked in a hot tub pops up, me shot gunning some beer, me and my then friend with benefits doing shots off each other…..My brother just starts laughing but my mom and dad turn to me and my mom says “So this is the ‘work trip’ you took to Mankato?” Yeah I kind of lied to my parents so they would watch my kids while I finally got a weekend away to have fun.

Last year in the late summer I was posting about how I was excited for the fall, my favorite season. I was going on about Halloween and pumpkins, cool weather, sweaters, and hay rides. Only my auto correct on my phone posted GAY RIDES. I have no idea why my phone thinks I meant to post gay instead of hay. But my homosexual uncle thought that was hilarious and posted a reply asking me where these gay rides were held and where he could sign up lol.

I have had quite a few autocorrect embarrasments, I think my phone is out to get me. One time I texted a friend when she told me some injustice on her latest assignment in college, whatever, I had the professor too and she was really terrible so I wrote “She is such a B*tch” and my phone changed it to “she s*cks a b*tch” yeah that’s super appropriate. Also my little cousin texted me asking me what I ate for lunch and my phone wrote “BODIES” in all caps, yeah, that was supposed to say noodles. One time I texted DH “what he wanted for the sex party.” that was supposed to for dinner, no joke, those aren’t even close to the same.  This is only a few of the many, my DH and I one time opened the texting function and my phone typed an entire paragraph on it’s own. I think it’s posessed.
