about this story

Life isn't easy for me. Every day I struggle to make ends meet, to put food on the table for myself and my family. The job that has been recently bringing in food is being a milkman. I may not have the nicest equipment like those other guys but my moto is that I'll deliver anywhere anytime, guaranteed.

One morning I got a call from some guy asking me to go to his house at some address I had never heard of and seemed way out of my way, but I had to stick to my moto so I agreed to come right away. I hopped on my bike and headed to his house. When I pulled up it was not what I expected at all, and plus I couldn't even find a door to bring the milk to. I walked around back and there "he" was, just chillin in his backyard waiting for his milk.

I brought the milk over and isntead of money he said he would pay me in advice. I told him all I needed was money to put food on the table for my family. But he said if I trusted him and left the milk then he would help me out. So I agreed and all he told me was go right at every sign til I was happy with the what I saw.

For what reason I'm not sure, but I trusted this fellow and headed home, milkless and without money for my family. I followed his advice, and darn was he right. I came up to a never ending field of caramel apples. Dreams really do come true
