She didn’t know the answer to the basketball jersey question but at least she replied with a “Sorry, Jena”.
I also talk to Alexa. Alexa is my black cylinder device and she is available for music, news and my questions, too. Sometimes I organize competitions between Siri and Alexa.

Where does a polar bear keep its money?
In a snow bank.
“Hey Siri, tell me a joke.
I don’t think you’d understand a joke in my language. They’re not so funny, anyway.

There’s one other system in my house. Let’s summon it. “Hey, Hubby!” “Hey Hubby!”

Our circuits were busy, but we managed to communicate and stay on track.
When my husband retired from his work I received a warning that my old Husband hardware and software was no longer supported. So I upgraded to the Silver Husband system, and so far, I have not been able to sync with my spouse.
