The talented and hilarious author David Sedaris just released his latest book, “Let’s Explore Diabetes With Owls,” a collection of narrative essays. And he’s currently on a nationwide tour spreading the humor about his Fitbit obsession.
Apparently, David’s obsessed with his Fitbit. Here’s an excerpt from an interview with metro:
This year, I got a Fitbit. You walk 10,000 steps and it sends you an email saying, “That’s great! A lot of people don’t walk that far. Do you think you can walk 5,000 more steps?” And so I say, “I bet I can!” A week ago, I walked 60,000 steps. That’s 25.5 miles. I’m completely obsessed. It’s like a sickness; I’ve been Fitbit-ten. It will be the summer of the Fitbit because it can’t go on. It just can’t.
Now that’s obsession! We love you, David.
