Super Short Story #473: Ride

He thought it was
worthless to pay for
such a fleeting experience
as an extremely short roller-coaster ride,
saying that life is already a fleeting experience,
with no time to waste on it.

She thought it was
priceless exactly since it is
such a fleeting experience,
that should be as memorable as it is extreme,
saying that it would remind her well
of how life is a fleeting experience.

and questions of how much the experience was really worth,
whether it could help understand themselves better,
and if taking it could make the world a better place…
while life fleeted on as the discussion went on.
