I almost didn't post this because it is too sad

This robot/doll Yumel was manufactured by a Japanese company and sold as a "healing partner" for elderly people. The phrases in its vocabulary include:

I love you!
Won't you sleep with me? Promise!
I want to have a secret that's just between us two.
Someday I want to go over the rainbow.
Washing clothes is hard, isn't it?
Is going out shopping hard?
It feels good when you sing in a loud voice.
It's strange that sometimes you cry when you are laughing.

What got me is "Washing clothes is hard, isn't it?"

I don't want to be decrepit.
