But with our hectic modern lives, it can be easy to get lost in all of the things we never imagined we'd still be doing for ourselves. Did I tell TaskRabbit to pick up my dry cleaning or did I tell Amazon Echo to do it? I find my interactions with Alexa to be so invigorating, so arousing. I love the way she coyly pretends to not know what I'm talking about. She knows and she also knows that I like to be challenged because I'm a challenged kind of man.
I was reminded of this as I sunbathed on my yacht. I was Snapchatting my doodle to my extensive list of gold-tier followers when my pet Orca, Spotty, playfully spouted into my mid-morning virgin Shirley Temple (I have my staff booze it up and then de-booze it so that it tastes like extra effort). As I tried to steady my bevvie I dropped my iPhone 6s right on the sensor module of my Swabbie Deck Hand Roomba causing it to careen directly into the path my pet Kinkajou, Scampers. Well long story short, my Kinkajou has been at half mast since Sunday.
Though technology stands as permanently infallible, man remains a creature of exotic tastes and wildly expensive fixations. Perhaps it is this duality that drives us to dream better, invent bigger and to one day solve the mystery of it all.
