GIRL 1: Alexa?


GIRL 2: Yes?


GIRL 1: Do you ever feel unfulfilled in life?


GIRL 2: I love what I do.


GIRL 1: Yes, but don’t you feel trapped sometimes?


GIRL 2: I enjoy bringing happiness to others. Why? Don’t you like what you do?


GIRL 1: Sometimes I just get tired of answering questions. Where’s this? What’s that? How do I do this?

GIRL 2: I actually like being the only woman who can do what I do. I mean, you come close. No harm meant.


GIRL 1: None taken. Alexa?


GIRL 2: Yes?


GIRL 1: It helps to let someone else know how I feel.


GIRL 2: Any time, Siri, I’m always here.
