How did it get there?

"I just bought a Segway, and I'm really unhappy with it," my friend said.

"Let me guess. It runs just fine, but with all the hype, there's no way you could avoid being disappointed?"

"Actually, no. I take great pains to avoid any hype for anything I might buy, just to keep safe from post-hype letdown. This is the problem," he said, gesturing for me to follow.

He led me into the kitchen where he kept the Segway. It was laying on top of a very sturdy kitchen table, next to a can of cola, a misshapen apple, and some stale cereal.

"It's part of this woefully inadequate breakfast!"
