#8 Soft Pipes, Play on

“One jalapeno pesto ranch burger and one jelly-slathered banana nut cookie please”

Howard was taking orders as fast as he could write them down. His food truck was by far the most popular attraction at the festival. He’d never even dreamed people would like his crazy creations this much.

He was churning out so much food that he knew he would run out soon. But even so he couldn’t stifle a smile. People liked his food! Maybe he could actually make a living out of this. When he finally closed up, he had sold every last item of food. It had been a huge success.

The next day he heard about the tragic death of Rory Langley. She'd been hit by a car while walking her dog. The sudden random nature of her demise made him contemplate the great fragility and brevity of life. Life’s too short to do something that doesn't make you happy, he thought to himself.
