Sleight of Hand

The most uncomfortable yet most common question from customers lately:
“So, what do you think of this election?”

My answer, after a fast and panicked survey of the home, assessing everything from authors on the bookshelf, to what news channel is on, size of gun cabinet, and cross-to-flag ratio, is usually:
“Were you aware that there are many third-party home automation technologies that are compatible with our XHOME API, and that they can create a seamless experience that combines location-based feedback with a minimized carbon footprint, leveraging cloud-based algorithms to give you a next generation user experience on a last-generation budget?”

*vacant blink*

Yep, I misdirect that shizzle like David Copperfield.
