Years ago I was traveling through Mexico on my way to Texas. The bus stopped at a small village and I bought some tacos. One tasted funny. Within several hours my body was wracked by gastric convulsions. I got off the bus in a small nameless town and booked a room in a disreputable posada. I read HP Lovecraft’s PITTMAN’S MODEL and fell asleep in a stupor.

A fevered dream of zombies chasing me through a decrepit garden became too real.

I shouted, “Wake up, wake up.” As the undead followed me down the dusty paths. A gazebo offered shelter. The screendoor and windows kept out the man-eaters for they were too weak to push through the flimsy barrier. Dust from under their fingernails in the air. More zombies came from the darkness. I was doomed and a eerie voice said, “If you tell us the secret of human life, we will live another 60 seconds.”

“The secret of human life?” Nothing I had read ever held the answer to this mystery, but I realized the secret. I couldn’t tell the zombies or else they would east the rest of the world in a raw frenzy.

The secret was that no matter how bad the fate awaited me I still wanted those extra 60 seconds.

And the same is for the young man from this video.

No matter what there always another chance.
