CHILLI: Why I'm Not a Fan of Our New "House Guest."


She arrived on Christmas morning. My husband gifted me a couple of Amazon Echo Spots. That means we now have ALEXA in our house. I'm not a fan of these so-called "smart speakers." They creep me out. It's very "big brother." These devices are listening and watching us. I'm not used to having this type of technology. It's taking me a while to warm up to the idea. 

I was surprised my husband brought ALEXA into our home. When I asked him WHY...he said he thought I'd like having her around since I'm always asking him what the weather is going to be like. He then went on to demonstrate all the "cool" things ALEXA can do (like play our radio station).  

My 5-year old was immediately fascinated by her. Donato started asking her all kinds of random questions. Then my husband started asking her stuff. It's been over a week and I still haven't warmed up to her. Yes, I ask her about the forecast. Yes, I ask her to play 97.1 WASH FM....but other than that...I'm not convinced I need her around. 

Producer Kala and Toby think I'm going to grow to love ALEXA. We shall see...
