*story and picture for day 2 of my 1-a-day May challenge.
My Mother’s house is like an episode of Seinfeld where all of the characters are Kramer. Friends and family come and go and come and go.
We may never know who was responsible.
My brother and I had bought our mother an Amazon Echo Plus for her birthday. She loved it. Her favorite feature was the ‘Grocery List.’
The other day when she sat down with a pen and paper and called out: “Alexa! Read me my Grocery List,” this is what I heard from the other room:
Salmonella flavored gummy vitamins
Ten gallons of lube
a one-year supply of used hypodermic needles
Two kilos of crack-cocaine
six rolls of duct tape
an entitled fish stick named Bleach
A nuclear family of sex dolls
Then I heard Alexa say, “there are five items remaining on your grocery list, would you like to hear those?”
And my mother said,
“No…no, I think not. Thank you, Alexa.”
