A voice sings a wake-up call to the inhabitants of the house as the story begins. There's just one problem with this scenario. All the people who lived in the house have vanished! The voice-clock is completely unaware that the humans are gone, so the voice sings on, calling the family to breakfast. The stove prepares breakfast, yet no one eats it. It is August 4, 2026, according to the voice, which recites the calendar of activities for the day.
