LISA– Yes we always thought you would close once we left
BRENT- You know what send them a word of wisdom. It’s our treat. And your national debt.
(they all laugh and destiny walks on to the new table of youngsters)
DESTINY- What can I get you guys? Some priviledge? and yeah, you’re going to get some words of wisdom free from the table of people in front of you. They just passed away and left you a treat for free. You better have them.
STUDENT3- Wait! What?!
STUDENT2- ya, sure. I mean, why not?!
STUDENT4- well, what are your lunch options?
DESTINY- We have smart phones.
STUDENT1- that’s pretty good!
Narrator- and so the vicious cycle goes on and on, for ages and ages not stopping for anybody no matter even if Steve jobs! Time and tide wait for no man. Life goes away fast and we always keep craving for more, never satisfied with whatever we have and we only realise it’s importance when it’s almost over. So, enjoy every bit of your life and be happy. Yeah, don’t forget to choose wisely you never know what destiny brings to you!
