I had another dream about something that I think could actually be invented. I’m not sure if I want it to be, but I woke up thinking that was not entirely far-fetched.
In the dream, I said to Steve that I was expecting a package from Amazon. He asked me when and I said I think it was supposed to come today. So I asked Alexa when it was expected to arrive, and she responded that it was said to have been delivered five minutes ago. I checked outside and there was no package. So I told Alexa that there was no package at my door. She asked me if I was sure, and I said yes, at which point she initiated “the protocol” which consisted of a chip on the package activating and yelling “I’m not where I’m supposed to be! I think I have been delivered to the wrong address or I have been stolen! Please return me to the correct address!”. It would get louder until a code that was sent to the Amazon app was entered on a tiny keypad on the package.
I woke up thinking of the harp from Jack and the Beanstalk, when it yells “Help! I’m being stolen!” Then I wondered if something like that might happen, what with all the stories of packages getting swiped from porches. It seems very creepy, but impossible? I’m not sure. Hopefully it never comes true, because we have enough tracking in our lives already.
