Wait, you can stay. Let's go to the living room, where I'll talk about the piece on my neck.
What I am holding is twenty-five million years old. It's a rhino fossil.
Hey, there are words on it- To the Colonel, for fifty years of service.
It's so pretty.
The Colonel was a friend of mine. He was a famous architect and designed many different subways. He was even knighted by the King of Sweden for his work. However, tragedy struck, and he was killed by a train.
Who's the Colonel?
Wow, I'm sorry for your loss.
After John's curiosity grabs the man's attention, he invites the teenagers to stay as he talks about the piece on his neck.
I want to go back!
I only know the Game of Life. Before we play, I think I'm going to have some fudge.
Listen to me. We want to be your friends. We will help you. Let's do something to cheer you up. Do you know any games that we can play with you?
He shows them the ornament, a twenty-five million year old rhino fossil.
How about you, my boy John?
Okay, what are both of your names?
Curious, John questions who the Colonel is.
Ha. That road is your Road of Life, and it means your life is a pretty hard one, and it's not exactly clear. And the cement curbs mean you are a big mess of confusion.
Close your eyes. Now imagine yourself walking down a road. What does it look like?
It's thin and winding. It's got cement curbs, and there's a lot of jungle vines all over the place.
Without warning, the man suddenly bursts into tears, prompting John to take quick action.
The man eats the fudge and begins to play the game with John.
The first part of the game involves imagining a road- the Road of Life.
