But I'm used to relationships lacking animacy, hell thats the primary
complaint most guys have when they divorce their wives. The great thing
about the answering machine is it only talks back when I want it to, it
takes orders quite well, doesn't mind a long distance relationship,
doesn't get angry about the other answering machine, and can even play
music. If I could teach it to cook and clean I'd be all set. I suppose
I could become muslim and marry four different appliances...
