Today’s daily prompt is called Soulful Machines and it asks;
Machines, appliances, and gadgets sometimes feel like they have their own personalities — from quirky cars to dignified food processors. What’s the most “human” machine you own?
I see. Is this actual personalities or personalities we assign to them? You know what, not today. Today I will not overthink this or over analyse it. I won’t. No. I won’t do it.
But what makes something “human”? Damnit that didn’t last long.
I don’t view any of my machines or gadgets as having personalities. They are machines and gadgets, just tools to make my life easier. At least they are meant to, they don’t always. Sometimes thinks will break and I have to spend half the day fixing them. If, and its a big if, those kinds of things had personalities it would of work shy lazy people whose only job seems to be making your life harder. We all know the type of person I mean.
Also dignified food processors? What the hell? Am I the only person who has no idea what that even means? Quirky cars I can just about go with, but dignified food processors? What the hell makes it dignified? Does it stand in a certain way? Does it do it’s job of processing the food with a certain elegance?
This is upsetting me more than I think it should.
How can a food processor be dignified? Like just how? It’s a food processor. It was built and designed to do a specific task, how can one be more dignified than another?
Could you buy two food processors that are the same make and model but both have different personalities? Will one be a complete slob always spitting out bits of processed food, dribbling it down the side, while the other always keeps itself prim and proper?
They are food processors. They are inanimate objects. They have no personality. If they do its because you are reading too bloody much into the damn thing. If that is the case can I recommend some fresh air? Maybe a nice long walk? Or how about a conversation with another human being because I clearly think some contact with another human being is sorely needed.
Dignified food processors. I have never seen those words put together before in my whole life.
