this is I

At some point in the last week, my wife pocket-dialed my Google Voice number and left a 3 minute voicemail. Google Voice transcribes voicemails, and while the following isn’t a word for word reproduction of Google’s attempt at transcribing that call, all I did was add line breaks, rearrange a few phrases, and mess with the punctuation, so it’s not too far from it, either.

Enjoy!

    Put it to a beat and you got a top-40 hit!

      It definitely has some Pop Top 40 lines, doesn’t it?

    Very nice! Sometimes, it’s like “transcript unavailable”, and sometimes you get interesting gibberish… I wonder what the difference is.

      I’d like to know that, too, though I can’t imagine I’d really understand the answer. Still, I think I’ve found an amusing new poetry generation tool; I think I’m going to start pocket-dialing that number intentionally.
