Was I hallucinating? Totally OT, perhaps relevant

I have 1 Mac, 1 PC with 4 VMs and 5 mobile devices minimum at my desk. One of them kept whistling every so often, it was like a cat call, very creepy. It was so quick I could never figure which device or why. Then one day I decided to play a word with my wife on one of those scrabble games while working and she responded instantly with a word and I heard that d**m whistle. Looked at all the devices and found that I had installed and logged into the scrabble game back when I first got the tablet and its notification indicator is a whistle. Let me tell you I had more than one conspiracy theory going for the better part of a year until I put 2 + 2 together the fateful day I decided to goof-off at work...

Well if it's spyware, why would they announce themselves?

Especially by intelligence agencies, but who would be interested in a retire Santa Barbara faculty member. I will get on bitdefender’s list with this question.
