A week later it calls to say you don't have to write to any of your relatives any more- it has that covered. In fact you can just give it a list of the books you were going to read and the films you want to see and it can synopsize all of that and only send you the stuff you would have remembered or that made an impact on you, leaving out all the extraneous crap. You go home anyway and discover that your kids are much better entertained by the robot and would rather take their dinner with it than with you. Your friends agree that it replaces you even better than you yourself, without any of the down side, so you can go do whatever you want! There, now are we happy?
