Time to call an audible

For those not hip to American football slang, “calling an audible” means a late change in plans. The change in plans in this case are for the trip to the lab rat keeper tomorrow. As of this afternoon it ain’t happening, no explanation given, just a call asking to reschedule for next week. This came after I made a trip to the store to take advantage of an expiring cereal sale and checked my Sweatcoin collection and I got just 4 Sweatcoin for the 2 mile trip. I did everything they said to increase my collection and it didn’t do any good. I’m still getting half of what I used to get. Rumors I’m getting are that my initial version of the app had the wrong calibration either converting miles to steps, or in counting steps from the accelerometer in the phone. If calibration is correct the two readings are close and are used to check each other but in some of the recent downloads that calibration was off and the recent update to the app corrected that mistake. Anywho, now I have to walk almost 3 miles to get what I used to get in 1.25 miles. And my feet do not appreciate it.

And I just found out Stephen Hawking died. Now I’m sad.😢
