Back when I had an Alexa, I was looking at my Amazon wish lists, and noticed an Alexa wish list that I hadn't created. I played the recording, and an voice was requesting Alexa to order extra large condoms, various sex toys, and a pack of Depends undergarments. Since I had ordering turned off, it only created a wish list. It was created on the time and date of our annual Christmas party, and I immediately put the blame on the young kids that had been playing by themselves in the basement, next to one of the Alexas. I had forgotten all about it, until a good year or more later, a good friend of mine confessed to the prank. I was shocked, as I was more worried that I was going to offend him just talking about the items, given his personality (or so I thought). I'm no prude, and although I would have probably thought it more funny when I was twelve, he was the last person that I thought would do something that. He apologized, and I told him that while I was a bit put off by the Depends, I was very flattered by the extra large condoms.
