“What’s a six letter word meaning “heavenly bodies,” Edgar’s wife asked him.
“Bikini?” Edgar responded without looking up from the sports section he was reading.
“Ha ha,” Martha said sarcastically. “It figures that’s where your mind takes you. No, the word starts with the letter A,” she clarified, looking down at the crossword puzzle in front of her.
“Artsy?” Edgar offered.
“That has only five letters,” Martha responded.
“Siri, what’s a six letter word for heavenly bodies?” Edgar said to his iPhone.
“Planet,” Siri responded. Martha rolled her eyes.
“Siri, what’s a six letter word that starts with the letter A and means heavenly bodies?” Edgar asked.
“Astral,” Siri said.
“That’s it!” Martha shouted, filling in the squares on the puzzle with that word.
“Damn,” said Edgar. “Siri is smarter than we are.”
