It din’t hit me till I went to spend a night at my parents house last weekend… but I am a prisoner of technology. What you are about to read is going to be so familiar, that I expect your eye widening and blush deepening!
So here’s recounting a normal Friday
#Fitbit beeps into my dreamy state ‘ It’s time to wake up, our goal for today 8000 steps, Let’s Go!’
#Mydietcoach reminds me that today’s breakfast options are boiled egg or fruit smoothie.
Damn! takes all the fun of waking up in my mum’s house, see you later cheese omelette and gobhi paranthas!
#Uber checks in with me ‘ Heading out? Use #work for discount’
#DailyWater worriedly reminds me ‘You have not had any water since morning, you have 8 glasses to go ‘
“Uh-oh! As my board room meeting develops into a war zone, I would be lucky to get a pee break. Water must wait!”
#Mydietcoach is back with my lunch options- Grilled sandwich or a bowl of daal.
“Little did it know, lunch was actually 6 cups of masala chai and 8 Bourbon biscuits!”
#BigBasket notification beeps. ‘Out of rice? It’s time for your weekly grocery replenishment’
“Out of rice? I am out of my mind right now! My laptop just crashed on me ….and no I had not saved my file!!!”
#DailyWater sends me a pic of a wrinkled fruit ‘You are dehydrated, have a litre of water to remain on the daily goal’
“Well actually my friend I am demoralised, dejected & depressed. I am sure you agree dehydrated is the least of my concerns”
#SportsSocial pings me ‘ Playing Badminton today? There are 3 confirmed players for a 6pm play. Confirm you?’
Phone alarm goes off ‘Don’t forget to pick up the drycleaning ‘
“Drycleaning? With this crazy traffic I will be lucky to reach my court on time”
#Mydietcoach send me the dinner menu. I look at that and the butter chicken the husband is devouring …as I click Remind me Later.
#Fitbit says ‘It’s time to rest, Goodnight’
“If it wasn’t for the fact that its soon going to be Saturday, I would be crying!”
After failing my daily app goals, its time for me to work harder… after all it all begins again at 830 am Monday morning!
