I have an iPhone with SIRI; you can speak into it and it translates your words into text. Amazing, right? So I use it a lot to text my text-mad teenagers.
Last night as I was getting my 7-year-old son Trassie out of the bath downstairs, I spoke a text to my 14-year-old son Christopher upstairs, whose bedroom is adjacent to the laundry room.
I said into the phone, “Get a pair of Trassie’s underwear out of the dryer and throw them down to me, please.”
Trassie looked at me, then the phone for a moment. He then asked —
“Can it do that?”
