Alexa, Not Now!

I’m fond of Alexa. With a simple command she does all sorts of wonderful things for me, including providing a weather forecast, defining words, telling jokes and giving sports updates. She’s like the kid in school who raised her hand at every question from the teacher, and always had the correct answer, without the accompanying smirk.

Early Friday morning I was doing some chores around the kitchen and decided to ask Alexa to play music without specifying an artist or genre.

She responded, “Here’s a station you might like. X-rated R and B Slow Sexy Jams.”

As the first song began I quickly realized she wasn’t kidding about the x-rated thing! I blushed at the graphic lyrics as I told Alexa to stop. There’s a time and place for x-rated slow sexy jams, but my kitchen at 7:30 a.m. didn’t fit the bill. I might’ve jotted down the station name, though, for future reference. You never know when a slow sexy jam might come in handy.

  1. Hahaha! So many inappropriate comments are drifting around in my head right now. I will keep them to myself.
    Alexa is handy but it would be great if she could differentiate between a young child’s voice and an adult especially when their pronunciation skills aren’t quite top notch. The girls get a fair amount of “explicit” songs popping up when they ask Alexa to play a video on their TV. At least the 6 year old can read and understands why grandma says no if she sees that word!
