Today's Wonder of the World is...the Robot!

Do those old fashioned robots make you as happy as they make me?
I started thinking about robots yesterday, when I wrote about Old Funnel-Head here.

He's taking a bus! Is he on the way to Kansas because he can't get Dorothy out of his head?
He should never have discovered that romantic heart of his.
And I should never have had that third cup of coffee.
Speaking of robot romance...
The first robot I fell in love with was Rosie, of Jetson's fame. It wasn't a romantic love. She was more like a mother figure.
(Don't get me wrong. I had a wonderful human mother of my own. Hey Mom!)
Anyway...didn't you love Rosie?

Rosie, you look sad to me. Maybe it's because Mr. J conned you into making a commercial--and then insulted your cooking on national TV!
Poor Rosie! That kind of robot exploitation makes me sick to my stomach! I think I need a Tums.
If you came to work at my house, I'd never exploit you.
I always thought we'd have housekeeper robots by now, didn't you?
I still want one to serve me drinks

(But not my pigsaw ones!)
And I'd let it do my vacuuming.

I might consider buying a vacuum like that, but Tanner would eat it.
You think I'm kidding.
You don't know my dog.
Hey look! The cat and the robot made friends!

But since I can't get one, I think I'll settle for this guy.

Isn't he cute? You can find him at Marianne Elson Griffith's etsy shop, HERE.
He might not make me coffee, but he sure could make me laugh!
Have a Wonder-full Thursday, everyone!
Before you go, have a seat on my psychiatrist's couch and tell me your innermost feelings about robots! Who were your favorites? I'm listening!
