Trelawnyd from Gop Hill yesterday
I have an Alexa
She doesn’t do a great deal as she’s in the bedroom,
But she does tell me the time, wakes me up in the morning and plays me the radio station of my choice when I’m groggily getting ready for work.
It’s an easy job, all told.
Last night she went a bit off piste
After I had asked her to set the alarm for 6 am
She cooed out an unexpected If you want any help to sleep just say goodnight
Of course I prompted with the suggested Goodnight
And suddenly the room was filled with sounds from a tropical jungle evening
With chirping cicadas and rhythmic insect calls
Gently Alexa called out Goodnight John
John! JOHN! ??
I never recall saying my name was john
