255. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right

Sunday, May 13th, 2:00pm
Colm and Harvey

 

Harvey: Feels lovely to be full after a Sunday brunch, doesn’t it?

Colm: It would feel even better if you hadn’t upset the party.

Harvey: You think it was upset?

Colm: Did you see the look on my mother’s face?

Harvey: Yes, but everyone else seemed all right with it. Your brother thought it was hilarious.

Colm: Still, promise me you won’t do it again.

Harvey: (shrugs) What’s a little nudity amongst family?

Colm stares.

Harvey: And it’s such a nice day for a swim.

Colm: Skinny dipping in the bird bath is a bit much though, don’t you think?

Harvey: If I’d gone in the pool, you’d have told me off for swimming on a full stomach.

Colm: You have a point.

Harvey: Anyway, it was for your mother that I did it. It is Mother’s Day, after all.

Colm: Oh right. Who knew she wouldn’t appreciate having a grown man take off all his clothes and jump in her bird bath.

Harvey: You’re being sarcastic, aren’t you.

Colm stares at Harvey for a moment, then looks away.

Harvey: (sighs) You used to think I was entertaining, once upon a time.

Jim and Katrina

 

Katrina: (puts her head on Jim’s shoulder) Did you hear that couple on the way out of the theatre?

Jim: (reaches for her hand) The ones who were arguing?

Katrina: Can you imagine? I mean, they were obviously married.

Jim: They seemed to know everything about one another, the way they were fighting.

Katrina: But they were just … ON each other …

Jim: … the whole time …

Katrina: … even before they came out of the theatre I think I could …

Jim: … hear them behind us bitching at each other.

Katrina: (squeezes his hand) We’re never going to fight.

Jim: Never.
