I told my smartphone to take me away. It said, do you want me to take you to: A Way. I said, No! — Sure. Yes. Okay, it said. I’m getting you a map to: A Way. Thank God, I said. You’re welcome, it told me. I laughed. Unreal! It pulled up the map. A Way was very close. I got in my car. My smartphone began playing “Livin’ on a Prayer.” I laughed again. O Great Phone, Thank You for being so Good to me. You’re welcome, it said as we sped over the cliff and into the sea.
