The guy who died was in a secret band called The Cobra Hobos who were better than all his public bands combined. His will stipulated that the master tapes of their discography (almost 300 albums in digital form, ~50GB) were to be given to the first guy in the phonebook who was home. And so that's how Jessie Aaron, 76 years old, came to be holding an external hard drive in his driveway. It was the first one he'd ever seen let alone held; he didn't own a computer. He stared at it for a long time. He called his son and left a voice message. His son, a successful lawyer, forgot to call him back. Jessie put the external hard drive in a tin box by his refrigerator and waited to tell his son the news.
