Real Time



I am driving 48mph. It is 8.4 miles to my next exit. I check my wrist. My heart is beating 82 beats per minute. It is 73° outside my car. There is an accident 2.1 miles ahead. A five-minute delay will prolong my arrival until 9:23am. I am burning 1 calorie per minute. I ignore the alert from my wife. I lick my lips and mutter the word coffee. I am notified a breakfast stop is 600 feet ahead. Daughter’s beep pings through the speakers. Heart pounds, did she earn an A or have a fender bender? My medical app warns my heart is beating faster.

The GPS informs me I missed the breakfast stop.
