The air was very clear and the long morning shadows distinct through the windows. Rays of sun shining through them covered the bed leaving rows of sun garden. There lies the most important companion of human race blinking. Always alert 24*7 following the wi-fi modem signals and keeping itself updated.
It is none other than an apple!. Not the fleshy, juicy, plumpy little red fruit rather it is the 4.90” *2.33” * 0.35”, 132 grams apple i-phone.
Ph! My god! I have to wake him up now…apple starts to “COCK-A-DOODLE-DOOOO”. “Ouch !” slides Barry making apple shut his mouth.
It’s 6:10 am “COCK-A-DOODLE-DOOOO” wakes him up after the snooze. Charged fully at the night for the hectic day, apple is on duty prompt! Barry just pokes him for every thing. Apple entered barry’s life as his birthday gift, he loves him so much that he pokes him, pins him, slides him from dawn to dusk.
Apple’s memory is full of games, photos, music and social media applications. Adding fuel to the fire, the “wifi” signals always keep him on work. Barry is always online to keep in touch with Verna, his childhood friend. Apple was much excited than Barry as he was going to meet Verna today.
‘POP’ Blinked Apple with Verna’s new message. With a slide “Meet u @ d coffee shop near old oak tree @ 10” read her message.
“Like” quickly What’s App-ed Barry.
With butterflies in the stomach, Barry started for the coffee shop to meet his childhood charm Verna. He parked his car in the parking lot and waited under the old oak tree.
Barry’s thoughts flashed back 10 years under this same oak tree, Verna and Barry used to chat for hours at their teenage. Years have passed by without any contacts.
His memories were interrupted when Verna came. She was tall n slim with long brown hair, she was pretty and had the same pleasing smile J After so many years, the social Network has made the friends bond again
And lo !, We left our hero in the middle. After the old friend’s reunion, Apple was busy, Bluetooth’ ing and signaling but this time with Verna’s Nokia Lumia !
So Internet, Social Networking, Tech savvy Friends, shared their happiness. Now with simple tweets & Pops they meet on weekends for shopping & coffee Shop !
