I remember when I used to wait for the credit card electronic pad at the grocery store to flash the word "approved". (They don't do that anymore.) I would inwardly chuckle at this mechanical affirmation and even savor the word "approved" as if it applied to me.
I remember the first time I hopped in my car, and my phone flashed a message that it was a seven minute drive to my school. Yikes, how did it know I was headed to school? Turns out, it didn't really KNOW, it just knew about my usual behavior on this day at this time. But it felt a bit creepy!
I recently set up a padlet for favorite slicers (and also for slicers who leave comments, but when I click on your name in the comment, it doesn't connect me to your blog). You know who you are!
During a recent middle of the night slicing and commenting insomnia jag, this comment popped up when I opened Padlet:
