Me: (to kid) Does Alexa work up here?

Me: (grabbing remote) Alexa, make an announcement.

Kid: You have to hold down the mic.

TV: (inaudible muffled, smokers’ voice sounding lady).

Kid: I just peed in my pants; it was simple instructions and you managed to not follow them.

….And I forgot, the Alexa is outside anyway.
