Say what? Part 2 - the legal version.

A Small Thing

DownloadThis week, I was visiting my daughter. She has "Alexa" - that personal-assistant thing from Amazon. (Yes, I know. I'm ancient.)

Anyway, we were in her apartment making dinner and she asked, "Mom, do you want to listen to some music?" "Sure," I replied. "What do you want to listen to?"  "Whatever you've got," I said. She paused. "How about the Beatles?" "Great!"

After which she simply said, "Alexa, please play the Beatles."

What got me? Not the technology. It was that my daughter has such lovely manners that she says "please" to a machine. A small thing. But sweet. Like my daughter.

I say please to my dog, Peggy, but she doesn’t say please back to me. Do I need to get an electronic dog? Should I call it “Alexa”?

Tortured logic, I know, but I’m still not wide awake. 🤪

That daughter of yours was raised right. 😃
