It's been awhile since I last wrote. I believe my last request was for a cabbage patch doll which never materialized, but I'll forgive you if you grant this one request. When the robotic vacuum first came out, I looked the other way & still hauled the twenty year old vacuum up the stairs. It seems that I have what wikipedia calls Frankenstein Complex named from an Isaac Asimov novel. I was hoping for a more scientific name than that. I should just come out & say it. My name is Sarakastic, & I'm afraid of robots. Yes, I watched the tv show Small Wonder when I was a kid. I understand that robots are people too. I'm not really afraid of androids. Really, the only thing I'm afraid of are robotic lawn mowers.
Now, I'm not picking on any one brand of robotic lawn mower, there seem to be quite a few. I guess they have a special safety detection device where the mower automatically shuts off if it is lifted up to protect Saras, kids, & pets. Did we learn nothing from I, Robot, Terminator & so many other cautionary tales? Eventually machines develop human characteristics & then they go after their owners. Ok, so it's been a long time since I've seen Terminator. If there is any robot that chooses to gain human characteristics & then come after me, I'd rather it not be a robotic lawnmower. There's no way to fight back if it goes all evil. So Santa, for Christmas, I do not want a potentially possessed lawnmower. If you could also keep potentially possessed lawnmowers away from my family & friends I'd also appreciate it. Thank You.
