The Computer Talks?

Here I was sitting at my computer, trying to upload the next chapter of Love Me Now to my blog. Of course it was being difficult, so I yelled at it. My oldest daughter Alex told me that the computer doesn't talk. So I told her yes it does. She looked at me like I was crazy and said, "It doesn't have a mouth, Mom."

I told her, "Yes it does, you're just not looking hard enough."

We kind of went back and forth for a few minutes and then she dropped it. Well my husband was on his computer too and he heard what we were talking about. So being the smart ass that he is, he decided to get on the voice activated system and type out, "Hello, Alexandria."

They instantly became interested in it and he had it talking to them as if they were having a conversation.

"What are you doing for Halloween?"

My youngest daughter Ariana says, "Going trick or treating."

"Why?" he typed.

"To get stickers."


"To play with them."



She can't say because.


Finally she got up and stormed off, "I don't want to talk to you anymore!" she screamed at the computer.

Of course we all burst out laughing, because she was completely serious. My husband then typed in, "Come back."

Ariana told the computer no. But after a few times of it saying, "Come back," she finally said, "Okay." And then proceeded to talk to it like it was a real person. This continued for awhile until my husband got tired of typing and finally typed, "Bye."

Tell my why my daughter, got mad and almost cried. I know I was probably wrong, but I couldn't help laughing so hard I almost cried.

We explained to Alex that the computer didn't really talk and that it was Daddy typing whatever he wanted to say. However, my three year old was very serious and now thinks she has a new friend. We'll break the news to her tomorrow. Tonight we're too tickled to try explaining it to her.

She won't believe us anyway.


  1. That was so cute! I miss my kids at that age; asking the three year old what she wants on her salad and her response of-everything except for the burnt teeth. Burn teeth? And she points at the bacon bits. Yeah, I died laughing!

  2. That is too cute. burnt teeth! lol. I might have to start using that.

  3. That was funny...your poor daughter.

  4. Awww that is too cute. I can imagine my brother and sister in law doing that to their kids.
