(others laugh)

AMANDA- It’s a real…

DESTINY- Ok how about spouses?

BRENT- Yeah, can I get soulmate

DESTINY- (sigh) I don’t where that rumour got started. But we don’t serve that here. I can get you the love of your life?

Everyone- yeah that’s ok, now how do you want it cooked?

Everyone- anything would do

ALLEN- I want it really hot. Make it all spicy I’ll show you I’ve got a whole list.

DESTINY- Perfect

ALLEN- It’s a little long. Long brown hair like Shakira. Wait, her hair is blonde. Can I have straight teeth? And long arms and blue eyes?

DESTINY- Ok. Your orders will be right back after 6-7 years. Good luck till then

————-AFTER 7 YEARS

SCENE 2

(the waiter, Chance gets all their spouses)

DESTINY- Alright here are your spouses.

BRENT- Wow! Awesome. Thank you so much!

AMANDA- I’m sorry I ordered a medium but it’s a large

DESTINY- I know it happens with time. Can’t help it

ALLEN- When is mine coming? Might take a while

DESTINY- Chance! Bring out the sad cat lady! Wait a minute it’s right coming up. Yeah. Can I interest you in any careers?

LISA- Can I get something in which I can go straight to the top? Because I’m special?

DESTINY- Yeah. Here’s our millennial menu

AMANDA- Can I get a novelist please

BRENT- You want to hold on to those options. How much for CEO?

DESTINY- 20 years

BRENT- Oh. Pricey

DESTINY- We do have a 15-year option but you will have to miss out on all your son’s baseball games.

BRENT- I will have that

DESTINY- Ok

AMANDA- Speaking of that, can I have a baby?

DESTINY- That will be 9 months of sluggishness and vomiting

BRENT- Me too

DESTINY- It will be 9 months of watching that

BRENT- Aww nah!

LISA- Ok I’m just going to get three babies

DESTINY- Well, behave your monsters

LISA- Ok

DESTINY- I’m just kidding. You don’t get to choose

CHANCE- Well here’s your order sir

ALLEN- Woah! Can you send it back please?

CHANCE- She is rich

ALLEN- Thank you that will be an honour

DESTINY- Ok (gives a strange look and walks away)

CHANCE- Maybe it’s not all that bad (walks away)

LISA TO BRENT- Hey how does yours look like?

SCENE3-

AFTER 10 YEARS

AMANDA TO LISA- Hey I thought you ordered three children

LISA- You know they dropped one by an accident

DESTINY- Ok I’ve got four mortgages. Careful they are heavy. Slower metabolism. Some student loans and some of life crisis.

ALLEN- Man, this meal is going by fast

BRENT- How much for lasting happiness?

DESTINY- Gratitude, service, self-improvement……

BRENT- Gosh! Get me a convertible (hands out a credit card)

DESTINY- Sorry life takes visa

AMANDA- What hobbies would you recommend

LISA- Well you already have a hobby what you need is a job

AMANDA- Writing is my job. Alright it’s my profession

LISA- Oh I wasn’t done with those. (as chance takes out her children)

CHANCE- well they got to go their own ways now.

BRENT- Well you got to learn to let go of them

BRENT- No no (as chance takes his post of CEO)

CHANCE- Sir, your time is up

BRENT- Should have spent more time at the office

ALLEN- regret it now buddy!

(chance walks away)

DESTINY- Ok, here are your deserts

DESTINY TO AMANDA- A bestselling novel.

AMANDA- Yes, it paid of

BRENT- Just like we all said it would

DESTINY- And like you all said some free time

ALLEN- Oh right at the age when it’s least enjoyable

DESTINY TO LISA- And here are your grandkids

LISA- Well, ellie looks spoilt

DESTINY- Well you actually did that

LISA- That’s right. Three more please

BRENT- Well everyone, it’s been a good meal. We should all come back some time

DESTINY- Well we have a healing policy

BRENT- Can I get my doggy back?

DESTINY- Oh you can’t take any of this with you

BRENT- That’s nice. Look I just want to say that this meal ended up quite well.

(new customers- youngsters walk in)

DESTINY- I’ll be right there, with you guys

STUDENT 1- Yeah thanks

ALLEN- Wait we’re not your last customers?

DESTINY- did you think that

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!
