I was travelling myself when I got my Fitbit, and because the tingle feels so good, not just as a sensation but also as a mark of accomplishment, I began pacing the airport rather than doing what I normally do, which is sit in the waiting area, wondering which of the many people around me will die first, and of what. I also started taking the stairs instead of the escalator, and avoiding the moving sidewalk.
I thought I'd do something a bit different today (mostly because today's writer provided the opportunity), so today's post strays a bit from our usual offerings.
If you aren't familiar with David Sedaris, you should be. He's arguably the best humor writer of our time, having written a number of books of essays like Me Talk Pretty One Day and Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls. Sedaris has a style all his own, a combination of subtle wit and self-deprecation.
Recently, he discovered the Fitbit. Enjoy.
