Conversations With A Robot

     "Alexa, how do I get these cats to love one another and not fight?"*

     "I DON'T KNOW THAT."
*  *  *
     "Alexa, set a timer.  Ninety seconds."

     "TIMER SET FOR ONE MINUTE AND THIRTY SECONDS."

     "Alexa, define 'pedant.'"

     "PEDANT: ONE WHO IS OSTENTATIOUS IN THEIR LEARNING."

     "Close enough."
*  *  *
     "Alexa, who loves ya, baby?"

     "HELLO KOJAK.  ALWAYS A PLEASURE."

     Yes, she really says that.

Asking Alexa to open the Pod Bay doors is responded to by "I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that."

I tried open pob bay doors with Siri and got:

Siri: What is this pod bay everyone is talking about?

Smarty pants computer.

Me to Siri: "Open the pod bay doors."

Siri: "Can't you just slide it under the door?"
