A thriller/comedy told by a young baker about the five bad days in his life as
predicted by his grandfather on his death bed just before the hero was born. On
the bad days his life is threatened by circus clowns and trapeze artists. The
title refers to what he expects to get out of life rather than how long he
expects to live. Well done. Very funny.
