The Furlongs were given a gift.
It simply arrived via Amazon.
One of the Furlong children bought it for us.
It is the nicest, best, most fun, cutest thing!
I thought I’d tell you about it.
At exactly nine in the morning, it switches itself on. We wait for it! Then it leaves its dock with great elegance and starts at the front door. It roams around, up and down the hall and passage, popping through each door into the lounge, the front bedroom, the bathroom, the kitchen and then into my room. I love seeing him – yes him, bumbling into my room, gently, very quitely and in a most friendly manner, checking under my bed, cleaning around the the edges and putting on a bit of speed as he crosses and recrosses the floor.
I feel he likes me! I’ve gone insane. I’ve fallen in love with our robot!
He is a he. In the instructions he is named a he. That must be his preferred pronoun.
I’ll insert a video here from the web to show you how he works.
But the amazing thing is, that after he has finished vacuuming all our floors, his blue light suddely switches to pink, and he finds his own way back to the docking point from whence he started.
He is a real chum!
