"Ping!" Time for you to

"Ping!" walk, "Ping!" stretch, 3,000

"ping" steps to go. "Ping!"

    It's like being on a very short leash.

    This was both fun and irritating - like those watches - not suggesting your poem is irritating, just that it conjured those feelings! Well done!

    🤣🤣. This made me laugh. I get so annoyed at my watch when it tells me “Time to stand!” …like come on, you can read my life signs, can’t you tell I need to keep sitting right now?
