>> Check the vending machine, maybe there’s something in it? When was the last time you ate??

C: “Shit, I remember buying boxes of that with Sully all the time. They sold it at the ball games.”

You’re frankly not sure when the last time you ate was. For all you know it could have been the same time as the last time you cut your hair. Which seems like… a while. You wonder how long whatever’s in the vending machine has been sitting there too.

As you approach the machine it seems that it’s almost entirely empty, apart from a single box of patriotic themed caramel popcorn, the kind that famously contains a special surprise inside. In fact, there’s a small cut out in the box to show the prize, which you can just about see a glittering of metal through.
