Go away, Hooman. This is cat time.
So yes, I'm one of *those* people that actually bought a HomePod. Siri isn't as versatile as a voice assistant as Alexa, but I was mostly interested in good sound with some voice activated convenience features and iCloud integrations.

Back from a fundraiser dinner for our daughter’s preschool. They had partnered with a local restaurant for a revenue sharing deal.
