Michael (and Phil)

 

Michael sits beside the window, reading a book. Phil takes the seat beside him.

Phil: My car broke down.

Michael: Excuse me?

Phil: I don’t usually take the bus, but my car broke down today.

Michael nods and goes back to reading.

Phil: I had a feeling it wouldn’t start.

Michael begrudgingly looks up from his book.

Phil: It’s just one of those days when you know something’s going to go wrong. Know what I mean?

Michael: Yeah. (glances out the window for a moment, then goes back to the book)

Phil: Do you own a car?

Michael: (lets the book drop in his lap) Nope.

Phil: You wouldn’t understand then.

Michael: Understand what?

Phil: What it’s like to have to take the bus.

Michael frowns but Phil doesn’t notice.

Phil: I mean, what do you do on the bus? When you’re driving to work, you have something to do.

Michael: I like to read a book. (lifts the book up and shows Phil)

Phil: Oh yeah? That’s a good idea. What are you reading?

Michael: Deadly Karate Blows – The Medical Implications, by Brian Adams.

Phil: Oh.
