While delivering Eleanor to dance class today . . .
JEFF: So Mom, which would you prefer, a real dog or a robot dog?
ME: Well . . . a robot dog wouldn’t cuddle up warm with you.
JEFF: But a robot dog would obey over 100 commands!
ME: True. It also woudln’t poop on the floor, chew up toys, or run away.
ME: But a robot dog would never look you in the eye to say “I love you.”
JEFF: Hmm . . .
ME: It’s a tough decision. Which would you choose?
JEFF: I think I would just like a cat.
