Meeo is always there. Always on. Eager to help. And he does help. But then we noticed something. Gaps in the day. We started to record, write things down. Notes on events we couldn’t recall, even just a few minutes ago. Pictures with us in them, and we couldn’t remember them. What’s this machine’s name again? It was on the base, but I’m not sure now. Who bought it? I don’t remember when or why.

He is very helpful, though.
