Studly and Siri

Last night I was on my third glass of wine when Studly Doright began planning his motorcycle trip from Doright Manor to his mom’s house in Hereford, Texas. I kept hearing him mumble into his phone.

“Siri, how far is it from Bainbridge, Georgia, to Dothan, Alabama? No, not Dowland, Dothan.

“How far from Dothan to Montgomery, Alabama?”

Some unintelligible mumbling.

This went on for at least twenty minutes. One town after another, one misunderstanding after another. Twice I thought he was talking to me. A couple of times I questioned his judgement.

“Little Rock, Arkansas? That’s way out of your way!” I said.

“Shhhh!” he shushed. “Siri and I have a thing going on.”

She helped him plot his route from Havana, Florida, to Bainbridge, Georgia, to Dothan, Alabama, to Montgomery, Alabama to Tuscaloosa, Alabama, to Columbus, Mississippi, to Indianola, Mississippi, to Hot Springs, Arkansas, to McAlester, Oklahoma, to Wellington, Texas, to his final destination of Hereford, Texas.

Whew! My route is much easier: Drive to the Tallahassee airport, board a flight to Dallas, Texas, at 7:45, change planes and arrive in Amarillo by 1:44. Siri never got involved.

He’s taking the road less traveled; I’m taking the friendly skies. Hopefully our paths will converge in the Texas panhandle. If not, Siri’s got some ‘splainin’ to do.

Peace, people!

  1. Haha! Forget Siri, I would have gone way old school and plotted my route with Google Maps. Lots more adventure for a road trip when you depend upon your own navigational skills. Although I suppose he wants to expedite his arrival rather than wandering the countryside…

  2. OMG! I’m the navigator in our family. Fly the friendly skies as often as we can & drive the shortest distance when we have to. Once on the ground, me & my I-Pad navigate the roads while my husband drives & follows those directions. Siri ain’t all that!

    1. I’m a map chick, but it’s hard when you’re on your motorcycle and don’t have a navigator. This way he just programs all of his stops into his gps and doesn’t have to stop to check routes all the time.


      1. Love it. I love when you make a phonecall and you get the say yes or no etc, cos it is automated and they do not understand. I always find they do when I start speaking all posh.

  3. I’ve never intentionally spoken to Siri. One day she popped up and asked me how she could help – I must have summoned her inadvertently. In barely more than a whisper I muttered “Oh, do go away”. “That’s very rude” came the swift reply
