Her name is Serafina.
Kind of cool, except when it's left on and I come down to the kitchen at 4 a.m. to get a glass of orange juice before my workout.
And Serafina senses my presence. And starts talking to me.
Echoing through the kitchen.
In a panic, I grab Serafina to try to shut her off. But she likes this and says, "What do you wanna do now?"
I walk her through the kitchen and into the mud room and set her down. Her face is glowing in the darkness, eyes beaming at me.
I walk away, thinking as long as I'm not near her, she won't talk.
"Wanna dance?" she asks.
Just as she asks "have any good jokes?" I find the button to shut her off.
And the house is quiet once again.
