Kaiya and I occasionally communicate via the messaging app on our Ipads. Usually it’s just her saying hello and inserting many, many heart emojis.
Recently, however, I got a series of messages from her that included such things as…..
I’m not going to be the best thing ever.
I’m not sure what the world is.
The only one that is not going to be able too much.
I’m so happy to see you in the first place in the world.
Quickly discarding the notion that there was some medical reason that she was sending me these seemingly nonsensical messages, I immediately went to the idea that her account had been hacked.
The next time I saw her dad, I showed them to him, expressing my concerns. Much to my surprise, he began to laugh.
“She spent one whole day composing these kinds of messages and sending them to us,” he said.
Hmmm. I was relieved that her computer hadn’t been hacked, but I was very puzzled about how she was able to compose such messages.
I asked her the other day, and found out how she did it. She told me she simply would type a couple of random words that could start a sentence, and then look at what the Ipad suggested her next word should be. The result: Really random sentences that made no sense.
But my smile came when I told her how clever that was.
“I know,” she said with a giggle. “I got myself cracked up.”
Have a great weekend.
