Great point. I think Fried's example is a little confusing to us because we don't remember right now what days Oct 21 and 22 were. But in the context of the interaction it should be fairly clear that, "Oh, it's just after midnight, Siri's confused because I actually meant today not tomorrow." The actual dates (21 vs 22) wouldn't matter, the two days Siri is trying to choose between is obvious in the moment.
