outfit of the day(bird): technology isn't your friend (literally)


my parents got a new car a while ago. my mom is so excited that it has all sorts of technological advances. basically, she's just excited that she can talk to the car and tell it to do things for her. and if you've ever driven with my mom, this is probably a good thing. we need her hands on 10 and 2!


 so when we all got in the car the other day, my mom was all too excited to show us what she could do. she wanted to tell the car to play adele. so she said, "turn on radio." and the car turned on the radio. unfortunately, my mom then realized that she had forgotten her phone, which she uses to connect her playlist to the car's system.


so instead of just stopping there (because truly, a car doesn't have feelings and would never begin to feel slighted or ignored), my mom waved her hand at the stereo system in a minnesota-nice dismissive way (because that's how my mom is...nice and would never want to hurt anyone's feelings ~ even a car's), and said, "oh, nevermind. i forgot my phone." 
   
jeans ~ Target
shirt ~ Marshalls
shoes ~ Urban Original
socks ~ Marshalls
ring, earrings ~ F21

and the car was very confused, but at least she left us alone for the rest of the ride.

  26. Paranoia strikes deep
    Into your life it must creep
    It starts when you're always afraid
    Step out of line
    The man comes
    and takes you away.
