Alexa, Back Me Up

I thought, after I developed my Shakespeare Geek skill for the Amazon Echo, that I'd have no use for it. After all, I know all of the content I put into the thing.  Turns out it's my greatest invention ever.

Middle geeklet: <asks math homework question>

Oldest geeklet:  "Are you serious? How do you not know that? Daddy, I was trying to help her with this stuff on the bus yesterday and I asked her whether 6.25 or 6.5 was bigger and she didn't know. How do you know not know that?!"

Me: "Take it down a notch, that's not being helpful."

Oldest: "No, but seriously, point two five.  Point five. How can anybody not know that?"

Me: "Alexa, tell Shakespeare Geek to insult my child."

Alexa: “Thou art like a toad; ugly and venomous.”

Middle geeklet:  "Ha!"

Oldest:  "Daddy!"

Me:  "I didn't say it!"

Oldest: "Yes you did, you programmed it!"

Oh I'm going to have fun with this.
