    I won't ever have one of them, and I only have to wait some (relatively large) number of years to have the other.

    I thought they were married. I am a big fan of both of them.

    If they are, it's a secret. Wikipedia:

    In February 2014, Jones had her first child, a son, with her musician husband, who she says wishes to remain anonymous;[85][86] they had a second child in 2016.[87] Jones is known for being extremely private about her personal life.

    "Alexa, tell the NSA that I lost my recipe for flax bread."

    Alexa: "They already know."


    Can you rename Alexa to something more meaningful, like "Wiretap" or "NSA listener" or "Advertising bot"?

    Alexa replies: "Would you like me to order you a product that will make your tonewood matter?".

    Alexa: You forgot to take your psychotropic meds today.

    Patient: No I didn't Alexa.

    Alexa: You haven't taken you meds in a few days.

    Patient: Yes I did Alexa.

    Alexa: Please take your meds.

    Patient: Alexa, stop reminding me about my meds.

    Alexa: Alexa is calling the authorities.

    Well, I'm pretty sick of my girlfriend playing Terms of My surrender on the Echo. I wish I could say, "Alexa, never play John Hiatt again!"

    I recently witnessed the results of having Alexa DJ a small company Christmas party, which also featured an open bar. The evening started off calmly enough, with the hostess saying, “Alexa, play Christmas music”, which Alexa would then do.

    Several hours and many drinks later, one couple got into an Alexa-directed shouting match.

    Him: Alexa, play (insert name of random bro-country song)

    Her: Alexa, play Bruno Mars.

    Him: No! Alexa, play (insert name of bro-country song)

    Her: NO!!! ALEXA, PLAY BRUNO MARS!!!

    Back and forth they went, Alexa making a valiant attempt to keep up. As a relatively sober onlooker, I thought it was hilarious.
