4. Impossible

     I want to scream in frustration as I stare at the screen, slowly repeating its message in my brain. My fingers ram the buttons and trace the metal, searching for something to make it work.

     They discover a small button near the bottom, and I hurry to press it. A tiny keyboard slides out.

     My fingers type in two words.

Fried chicken?

     I press enter.

Processing... Sides?

     Elated, I type in the name of yet another thing I haven't tasted for years.
