Curtis and Melody


Curtis: So, do you watch Game of Thrones?

Melody: I don’t watch TV.

Curtis: Huh. What kind of music do you listen to?

Melody: I like the bagpipes.

Curtis: Interesting … Watched any good movies lately?

Melody: Yeah, actually. I just saw Ishtar for the first time. I thought it was great.

Curtis: Ishtar?

Melody: Yeah, you know. Dustin Hoffman?

Curtis: Oh right. Riight …

Melody nods, her hands resting on her lap.

Curtis: So I thought we’d, you know, go bowling or something tonight.

Melody: Oh. I don’t have bowling shoes.

Curtis: (smiles) You can rent them.

Melody: (shakes head) I don’t think so. I take a size fifteen.

Curtis: Huh. So what would you like to do?

Melody: We could … I dunno, maybe take in a hockey game?

Curtis: Sure!

Melody: My baby brother is playing. He’s four. My parents and all my aunts and uncles will be there.

Curtis:  (eyes wide) Damn!

Melody: What is it?

Curtis: I just remembered I have to take my dog for a walk. I’d better get off here. (stands) Maybe we can try for a date again next week. I’ll call you.

Curtis gets off the bus.

  1. I feel this is too relatable. My favorite interests are uncommon as well. They may not be bagpipes and Ishtar, but they’re uncommon.
