SF Drabble #113 “A Better Her For A Better You”

I ordered one of those new companion robots. I had money; a relative had passed on and left me 50k. She came in a seven foot crate. I felt conspicuous as my neighbors watched the delivery guys carry it in from the truck.

Their slogan is accurate. Within a week she had me shaving every day and looking in the classifieds for a better job. I do more chores around the house than I did when I lived alone. We take turns cooking; I’m getting better at it.

It’s been a month. We haven’t even gone all the way yet.
