My wife just asked me who I was talking to in the other room. The boys are asleep, we’re alone on the flat. She’s watching a DVD in the bedroom, I’m watching a separate film on the lounge.
– “No one, why?” I ask her.
– “I heard you talking to someone.” she insists.
– “Oh! I was talking to the Xbox.” I say, mater-of-fact-ly.
I get ‘the look’.
– “Isn’t that a bit weird?!” she rightfully asks.
– “It wasn’t a conversation! I was giving it commands via Kinnect!”
Now, wasn’t that obvious?
