Sunday morning. Charlotte is in the kitchen, about to make a piece of whole wheat toast. She turns the dial on the toaster to setting #1 and pushes start.
Moments later, the toast pops up.
Charlotte (aloud, to nobody in particular): “This… this is not toast, this is still technically bread… Okay well, I’ll just turn it up one more little notch to setting number 2. Easy-peasy”
A few rather long moments later, the toast pops up.
Charlotte opens the refrigerator and reaches for a yogurt instead.
Sunday afternoon. Charlotte and Eric decide to go for a run. They set out on a 4-mile route and use RunKeeper to track their progress. Throughout the run, Runkeeper continually interrupts Charlotte’s music to tell her how far and how fast they are going. Right away, she realizes something is amiss.
Charlotte (through gasps of breath): “I think something might be wrong with RunKeeper”.
Eric (panting): “What? I can’t hear you.”
Charlotte (wheezing): “I’ll tell you after”
Upon arriving home, Charlotte and Eric take a look at their RunKeeper mapped route and stats.
They both collapse on the couch vowing silently to download a new app later, once they’re no longer so hungry.
Sunday evening. Charlotte and Eric decide to end the day by watching a movie on Apple TV.
