Ooh, a new feature just popped up in my website builder. An AI Assist to generate written content. I was going to write a paragraph of my own and make it a game to guess which paragraph was the AI and which was mine, but it would've been too easy. I guess I'm not famous enough for it to pick up on my style, although ostensibly it should be "reading" my blog and generating content based on that, no? Or maybe I need to practice how to "program" it. The prompt I entered was pretty basic: "Walking in rainy weather with cats and dogs." From what I hear the key to effective use of AI is generating "super prompts." The result is readable and even a little informative, but definitely not "me". I mean, it didn't even come up with a dad joke about raining cats and dogs! C'mon! Anyway, for your reading pleasure, the unedited AI content is below:

Walking in rainy weather with cats and dogs can be a challenge, but it can also be a fun and rewarding experience. The sound of rain hitting the pavement and the scent of wet earth can stimulate our pets' senses and make the walk more interesting. However, it's important to keep our furry friends dry and warm, especially if they have short fur or are prone to catching a cold. We can prepare by dressing them in raincoats, carrying towels to dry them off, and avoiding puddles and slippery surfaces. Moreover, we should be extra cautious on the road and keep our pets on a leash to prevent accidents. Despite the extra effort, walking in the rain can be a bonding experience with our pets and a refreshing change from the usual routine.

It is the perfect kind of day for snuggling indoors and getting an ear rub, one of Mr. Peanutbutter's favorite activities. Chunk, on the other hand, being born on a farm likes to impersonate a cow and graze on tall grass. We came across a couple of waterlogged cats, and Marmaduke took the opportunity to feign affection and dry himself off on my pants.
