For a while now, Steve’s been agitating for us to get a GPS for the car. Now, I’m notorious for getting lost. As Susan Cooper once said, “I don’t have a bump of direction, I have a dent.” So the idea does make some sense.
Yet, I’ve always resisted. Some weird robot voice telling me where to go? I’d want to mess with it, see if I could break it. Or, you know, I just wouldn’t believe what it was saying.
But I’ve recently realized that under very specific conditions, I would very much like to get in on the GPS action.
See, you know how there’s that thing at some hotels where you can get wake-up calls from celebrities?
Well, what I want is a GPS system voiced entirely by the cast of The Wire. I mean, if I had, say, Clarke Peters, Idris Elba, Wendell Pierce, Lance Reddick, and Michael K. Williams telling me where to go?
I’d never get lost again.
If you could have a personalized GPS, who would the voices be?
