I read this when I was- fourteen? It was, if i recall correctly, in a student textbook, so it must have been around a little while.
Story about a guy who works in a computer lab, and I believe the computer is called WOMAC. The computer starts giving out odd answers, and the narrator finds it is a female tech who is programming the computer to use quotations from literature that are more descriptive or as she states “More exact”. The guy has a brief exchange with the computer, and as he leaves the computer tells him to “Say hello to cousin ollie” who turns out to be Ollie Womac, a ballplayer.
or maybe I just imagined the whole damned thing. I can find NOTHING about it.
