I had to take my Prius in today for an oil change. There was a software update they wanted to do at the same time so I was stuck at the dealership for two hours. I had just started reading The Cockroaches by Jo Nesbø so I wasn’t upset about having to sit around for a couple hours. But at one point, I took a break to look at Facebook and decided to update my status to tell the world where I was...as if the world cares. But this is how the rest of the conversation went:
From my aunt: Did you get a recall notice?
Me: Yes. They are updating the software. Otherwise, it’s the usual countenance. Gives me a good chance to dead.
Me: I mean maintenance. I don’t know where countenance came from.
Me: AND I meant READ. Dead…what’s up width that??
Friend from Canada: fb is in your puter correcting your spelling for you…LOL!
Me: They took a lot of leeway with width.
Me: Or maybe that’s the Olde English-speaking.
Me: Wow! This thing is out of control today.
Friend from Ohio: This is hilarious! At least it didn’t change Prius to Reince Priebus.
Me: What? Lol.
Friend from Canada: Prius? Wait for it…Pretence…fb is testing your patience and listening to you wine…er…whine.
From my aunt: I have an appointment Wednesday to get my software updated. I’m going to leave the car for the day because it’s almost time for my 25,000-mile checkup.
Me: I’ve got almost 60,000 on mine and it’s still ticking beautifully.
Me: I wine…er…whine a lot, Friend from Canada. lol.
Friend from Canada: fb knows.
I did get a couple of odd glances from other people in the waiting room when I chuckled audibly. I imagine that Facebook knew that, too. But I sure hope that Reince Priebus isn’t keeping track of me.
That would just be too weird.
No, I haven't lost my marbles. As you can see, they are safely contained in a little glass bowl.
