Your three words, my little story
Ernie’s words: Liz, life and unfair
He was standing in the road next to his car yelling, “It makes no sense, none at all! LIFE is so UNFAIR!” Then he locked his car and started walking to town. How could he possibly forget to buy gas?
He figured the gas station was seven miles away. So if he got gas later and walked straight to the restaurant he would be two hours late from ordering his meal. The only way he can make it on time, is if someone picked him up.
He was supposed to meet LIZ a half an hour ago and then meet her parents for the first time in ten minutes. He knows she’s worried about him, but there’s nothing he could do about it.
He just passed Lost River when he heard a vehicle behind him. Maybe he can still meet her parents for dinner if this car picked him up. It just happened to be a friend of his, so he knew he would only be a few minutes late.
