As in out loud, without typing a stroke on a computer.
Not a day later, I started seeing ads on Facebook for something-or-others.
The best something-or-others out there on the market.
With the most competitive prices.
Something like that happened today.
I bought a Nine Line t-shirt for my son – a pro-gun shirt because he supports the Second Amendment.
I happen to know he will LOVE this gift.
I can already hear his high falsetto voice cooing at me, “You REALLY know me, don’t you mom?”
Now, I’m getting ads for Shield Republic and other patriotism-focused stores and I’m amused.
Don’t get me wrong.
I’m not amused because the algorithms might think I’m a Republican.
I’m amused because those algorithms have to reconcile the fact that on the one hand I bought a Second Amendment t-shirt but on the other hand, I also bought a rainbow LGBTQ face mask.
I defy definition.
