A snippet

Setting: Our dining room. I am practicing the piano. Jeffrey is playing a Star Wars game on a laptop at the dining room table behind me.

Me: 6/8 time is bullshit!
Jeffrey: I am a robot. Correct that: I am a droid.
Me: I wish I were a robot. Then I could get this timing!
Jeffrey: But you wouldn't get joy from it.
Me: I get joy from precision.
Jeffrey: You are very unusual.

A lot of conversations end this way.
