You swing the door of the kitchen back to reveal a vending machine which gives one last gurgle before subsiding into silence. There appears to be only one variety of drink in the machine. On the right hand side is a coin slot & the notice above it reads

"Coke - 3 copper Zorkmids.
Please insert exact change"

You delve into your pockets & find 3 zorkmids which you feed into the slot. The last coin drops into the coin box. You wait in anticipation, there is a whirring sound from within, then a loud clunk & the sound of glass scraping against metal & finally nothing!
You can...
* Thump the machine.
* Look around the kitchen again.
