O speakme é uma aplicação do sistema operativo Andróide. Como o nome indica o speakme lê tudo o que chega ao smartphone. Ajuda a que possamos distinguir a urgência da notificação, portanto. Mas lê com uma entoação que eu e ele achamos bastante engraçada. De mensagens a apontamentos no calendário, do remetente e assunto dos emails até... à primeira linha de chats.
E eis senão quando, entre o silêncio que o trabalho pede, começo a ouvir (coisas como):
The service began. It consisted of the following. The priest, having dressed in a strange and very inconvenient garb, made of gold cloth, cut and arranged little bits of bread on a saucer, and then put them into a cup with wine, repeating at the same time different names and prayers. Meanwhile the deacon first read Slavonic prayers, difficult to understand in themselves, and rendered still more incomprehensible by being read very fast, and then sang them turn and turn about with the convicts. The contents of the prayers were chiefly the desire for the welfare of the Emperor and his family. These petitions were repeated many times, separately and together with other prayers, the people kneeling. Besides this, several verses from the Acts of the Apostles were read by the deacon.
E não consigo parar de rir.
