Married to Mr Gadget!
by Sharon Archer
|Why have one when you can have two... or more!
Yep, men love technology! And my husband, Glenn, is no exception! The latest gadget arrived a couple of weeks ago - a GPS. Things didn't look promising to start with... it couldn't find where it was! Not a great start for a gadget that's supposed to tell you where to go!
Anyway, we went out with it in the car for the very first time. As we turned out of the gate, an emotionless female voice said...
- Drive for two point three kilometres. Then
- In eight hundred metres, prepare to turn left.... and
- In three hundred metres, prepare to turn left.... and finally
- Turn left at the next intersection.
But then, as Glenn accelerated up the hill, she said the magic words...
- You are over the speed limit!
So have you got gadget lovers in your life? Or perhaps you're the gadget lover? Confess all!
I've got a copy of The Man Behind The Badge to give away to one of my commenters!
PS No husbands were hurt in the writing of this blog article. In fact, Glenn sourced gadgets for photographing. When I cried "Enough, enough!"... his plaintive voice came from down the hall, "But I haven't opened the other box yet!"
