I thought, after I developed my Shakespeare Geek skill for the Amazon Echo, that I’d have no use for it. After all, I know all of the content I put into the thing. Turns out it’s my greatest invention ever.
Middle geeklet: <asks math homework question>
Oldest geeklet: “Are you serious? How do you not know that? Daddy, I was trying to help her with this stuff on the bus yesterday and I asked her whether 6.25 or 6.5 was bigger and she didn’t know. How do you know not know that?!”
Me: “Take it down a notch, that’s not being helpful.”
Oldest: “No, but seriously, point two five. Point five. How can anybody not know that?”
Me: “Alexa, tell Shakespeare Geek to insult my child.”
Alexa: “Thou art like a toad; ugly and venomous.”
