128. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right

Saturday, January 6th, 5:00pm
Drommen (and Bella and Hillary)


Drommen sits at the window. Bella takes the seat beside him.

Bella: There you are!

Drommen: (glances at her) Hi.

Bella: Where have you been?

Drommen: Around.

Bella: Well you’ve missed a lot. Edward is still after me and now his new girlfriend wants to scratch my eyes out.

Drommen: Hmm.

Bella: Do you think you can help out?

Drommen: I don’t know what I can … (looks up the aisle) Oh God.

Hillary: (approaches and sits behind Drommen and Bella) Hey, there you are!

Drommen: (unenthusiastically) Here I am.

Hillary: You should know that flasher guy just won’t give up. I keep hearing about him.

Drommen: That’s too bad.

Hillary: Aren’t you going to do anything about it? I thought you considered this “your bus.”

Drommen: Let the cops look after it. They’re around.

Bella: What’s gotten into you?

Hillary: (frowning) Yeah. Are you okay?

Drommen: I’ve got personal stuff going on.

Bella and Hillary stare at him.

Drommen: I’ll see what I can do.

Bella: Thanks Drommen.

Drommen turns to look at Hillary. Hillary smiles at him.

#JusJoJan 2018, the 5th – Memories

It seems to me that memories are like family recipes. They might be passed down religiously, but in time they morph into what fits, depending on the recollections–or the ingredients–at hand.

To me, the saddest thing in life is that our memories of loved ones, of relatives who have passed on, fade. Perhaps that’s what makes them so precious.
