K: What were you doing?
Me: I just sunc my iPhone.
K: You sunk it? Like in water?
Me: No sunc, as in I added new songs.
K: That would be synched, honey. You mean you synched it.
Me: I’m sorry, but I’m pretty sure sinked is not a word.
K: Ummm….yes it is.
Me: You’re talking with an English major here. Just sayin’, I would probably know.
K: I know you’re an idiot. Look it up.
Me: Like in a dictionary? Those are heavy.
K: Like on the Internet, genius.
Me: Let’s just see how it sounds in a sentence first: ”The boat sinked into the ocean.”
K: You said you were synching your iPhone, not sinking a boat.
Me: So? It’s the same thing, at least grammatically. They’re both past-tense. Listen: ”He sunk the boat,” and “I sunc my iPhone.” Steve jobs wouldn’t be that big of an asshole and invent some fucked up word like that.
K: Steve Jobs didn’t invent the word “Sync”. It was already a word.
Me: Really? Before there were Apple products I didn’t think anyone sunc anything.
K: It’s because they didn’t. They synched them.
Me: That’s what I said.
K: And I know you love Steve Jobs, but he isn’t the king of the universe, just so you know.
Me: Yeah, but what if Steve Jobs and Jason Bourne had a kid. HE would definitely be king of the universe. He would invent all sorts of kick ass apps and iOS updates that would bring down the government guys who were chasing him.
K: I’m going to bed. You can sleep on the couch.
