Trinket Machines – Curse #98YEI

Posted on March 19, 2011


His girlfriend gave him two quarters and said, choose one and hurry.

He stood in front of the machines and tried to decide what to pick.

Pick one, she said.

He said, Which one?

She said, I don’t care just hurry.

He peered into the machines, trying to make out what his quarters would get him.  None of them looked particularly appealing.  If he picked the wrong one, he would feel bad about his decision. If he picked the right one he would feel good for a fleeting moment.

She said, pick one, NOW.

Be quiet, he said. I’m trying to think and I can’t concentrate when you get like this.

Pick one, she said.
