I Made a Difficult Life Ch;ce
While I was visiting my sister, we decided to order some Chinese takeout and binge-watch a few of our favorite shows. I volunteered to pick up the food. After paying, I was carrying our hefty order out to my car. I felt things starting to shift in my hands.
I was carrying a lot of quality Chinese food in my arms, but I also had my brand-new iPhone in my hand. I was about to drop
something, either the food or the phone. Considering my dedication and passion for Chinese food, I decided to drop my phone. It
was a split-second decision. As my phone plummeted to the ground in slow motion, of course, I saw a tiny pebble. I could feel it.
My phone was going to land directly on the stone. After my phone hit the ground, I set the food down and picked up my phone.
Shattered. I sighed, got in my car with my Chinese food and my broken phone, drove back to my sister’s house, and binged. I
stand by my decision. Chinese food is good.
