Fifteen Minutes

In 15 minutes, you can finish half of your coffee; take out the garbage and replace the plastic in the bin. In 15 minutes, you can drive to the nearest fast food; watch 4 music videos on YouTube or write a one paragraph essay about life.

In 15 minutes, you can cook breakfast for yourself; read a chapter of a novel; clean out your desk. You can mow your lawn, talk to your neighbor or fix a broken zipper. You can smoke a cigarette; finish a glass of beer and read an article. In 15 minutes, you blast through your paper-works.

That’s how long it took for everyone to be famous in the future, quoting Andy Warhol. It’s also how long it took for Air France 447 Flight to kill everyone, after the captain leaves the deck to take a nap. In 15 minutes, everyone died on the plane.

In 15 minutes, you can start a fight, or break it off. You can deliver a mail; buy an engagement ring; or plan your day in details. You can take your recess; give out all 30 flyers for prom night; and talk to the guidance counselor.

In just 15 minutes, you can move on with your life, or you can end it.
