I know I’m probably not using this iOS feature as intended, but I’m OK with that.

If you look under “Settings > General > Keyboard,” you will find a setting called “Text Replacement.” I believe the intended use is to create text shortcuts so you don’t have to type a phrase you use over and over. Apple includes a sample text replacement: when you type “omw,” it will be replaced with “On my way!”

I decided to create a different kind of “text replacement”:
