Daily Prompt: Vending Wishes

Daily Prompt: Vending Wishes

Soft drinks, electronics, nutrient-free snacks — you can get all of those from a vending machine. But what type of vending machine is sorely needed but doesn’t yet exist? Share your automated retail fantasies with us!


Jimi inserted the coins
He listened to them fall
He pressed the button marked “MUSIC”
Pulled open the door
There was a new Stratocaster and the ability to play it.

Wayne slipped a dollar note into the bill acceptor
The belt whined as the money was pulled in
He chose the button “SPORT”
A stick, a puck, and shiny skates dropped with a clunk
He laced up the skates and commenced to score.

Albert dropped a couple of Marks in the slot
On the face of the Automat in front of the Lebensmittelgeschäft
A small slip of paper and a clear understanding was his prize
E = mc² was printed there.

Every day I put my money in
I always press “WRITE”
Without fail, each time, the machine eats my coins
A tagger has painted with green spray on the front “Practice” – that’s all I get
I go home, grab my pencil, my paper, and do as instructed
I’ll try again tomorrow.
