Lily (and Phil)

 

Lily sits at the window. Phil takes the seat beside her.

Lily: Hi.

Phil: (sighs) My car broke down.

Lily: Aww, that’s too bad.

Phil: Yeah. I’ve got to get rid of that piece of crap and get something new. I hate taking the bus.

Lily: I’ve got something for sale.

Phil: Yeah? Is it Japanese?

Lily: Nope. It’s all Transylvanian, baby. (smiles, running her tongue across her fake fangs)

Phil changes seats.

18. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right

Monday, September 18th, 8:00am
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.
