An Encounter with a Robot

Rupert Repute encountered a robot.
A look of awe washed over him.
Letters sloshed from his mouth.
The letters formed words.
The words formed questions.
An air filled with queries.
The robot remained silent and emotionless.
A contraption dedicated with the task at hand.
Eventually they parted ways and Rupert continued on his journey.
Rupert Repute encountered another robot half an hour later.
He no longer cared.
