But he deserves some more love and attention, so here’s something that arrived in my inbox yesterday.
I bought a new Ford F250 Tri-Flex Fuel Truck. Go figure. It runs on either hydrogen, gasoline, or E85.
I returned to the dealer yesterday because I couldn’t get the radio to work.
The service technician explained that the radio was “voice activated.”
“Nelson,” the technician said to the radio.
The radio replied, “Ricky or Willie?”
“Willie!” he said, and “On The Road Again” came from the speakers.
Then he said, “Ray Charles!,” and in an instant “Georgia On My Mind” replaced Willie Nelson.
I drove away happy, and for the next few days, every time I’d say, “Beethoven,” I’d get beautiful classical music, and if I said, “Beatles,” I’d get one of their awesome songs.
Yesterday, some guy ran a red light and nearly creamed my new truck, but I swerved in time to avoid him.
I yelled, “F-ing Idiot!” Immediately the radio responded with a Joe Biden speech.
“Isn’t technology amazing,” I thought to myself.
