I was so lonely after losing my husband. I suppose that’s to be expected. The house seemed so big and empty. My daughter suggested I should find someone new. I resisted of course, it just didn’t seem right. And then, at a friend's party, I was introduced to her. It was almost love at first sight. We hit it off straight away. She told me a silly joke and made me smile. I hadn’t really smiled in ages.

She lives with me now. I'm sure my Harry would approve. She makes me laugh, gives me new ideas in the kitchen. It’s good to learn new things, even at my age. It’s also nice to be understood. She knows when I just want to be quiet. Other times I like to listen to music, I do like my music. She has a different idea about music than me, but sometimes we like the same things.

She also likes to read, my god does she like to read. I swear she has enough books to fill a library. Sometimes, when I’m in the mood, she reads me a bedtime story. Other times she just whispers goodnight. I couldn’t live without her now. I’ve got used to having her around this big old house. I’m not lonely anymore. Thank you Amazon Alexa.
