The Sadness Paradox
You told me you wanted to eat up my sadness
Well jump on, enjoy, you can gorge away
There is nothing Ben wouldn’t do for his love Emily. So when he saw her slipping into a crippling depression he knew he had to do something. Ben comes from a VERY long line of inventors so he knew if anyone was going to be able to invent a machine that you could breathe into and it would swallow your sadness and spit out delicious ice cream it would be him! So after years of trial and error, Ben finally perfected the machine. Only thing he didn’t realize was how much the world needed this machine. Everyone from The President to Joe Six-Pack to The Mob wanted to get their hands on the sadness swallowing machine but there was only one causing a great panic and an even greater amount of sadness in the world for those who couldn’t get their hands on it.
The Sadness Paradox is a thrilling tale of just how far some people will go to keep others from pain while being able to eat your feelings, literally. At the end of the day, who will end up with the machine? Will the FDA ever approve sorrow filled ice cream? How many calories are in a large depression? You’ve never read a story like this! Murder, Mystery, Intrigue, Suspense!!
