A recent conversation with Siri when I was trying to find out where the phrase ‘nooks and crannies’* came from.

“Do you mean rooks and grannies?”

“No – try again”

“Do you mean books and nanny?”

“No – try again”

“Do you mean norks and fannies?”

“No!!! – well – erm – no, better not. Thank you anyway. I’ll try Google.”


*small voice* “Cooks and trannies?”


*Scottish BTW and been around for ages. I also found a hearty muffin. Perhaps Siri wasn’t that far off after all.
