To say I am not a dancer is an understatement. I have no rhythm and I’ve learned over the years that with dancing, either you have it or you don’t. If I’ve had a bad day or my son has had a bad day I talk to Alexa. Do you know who Alexa is? She is a wonderful product that Amazon designed to play music but she will also order something from Amazon for you, tell you the weather, answer a gazillion questions and she even tells jokes! Here is a list of some fun “easter eggs” Alexa can do: Click Here
Officially known as the Amazon Echo, Alexa is one of the coolest electronics you can give to your family. All I have to say is “Alexa, play Knights of Shame by Awolnation” and she will find it in my music library and play it.
I can’t believe I just admitted that we listen to that song- and it isn’t funny and the words are a bit crazy but the beat….that beat gets our booties shaking and our hips swinging and before we know it we are dancing and laughing and singing along with the crazy lyrics, forgetting all about our worries for five minutes and enjoying some intimate time together.
It’s also a great way to sneak in a little exercise which will boost those endorphins.
While Alexa is certainly optional (we also have a record player and a CD player we sometimes use) she is wonderful and everyone who comes over our home often ends up buying their own shortly afterwards.
