119. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right

Note: Strong language

Thursday, December 28th, 3:00pm 3:20pm
Hillary (and Bella)

 

Hillary sits at the window. Bella takes the seat beside her.

Bella: Excuse me, haven’t I seen you on the bus before?

Hillary: Probably.

Bella: I’m looking for a guy, about six feet, dark hair, pretty good-looking. He’s on this bus a lot.

Hillary: He usually sits here?

Bella: That’s the one. Have you seen him lately?

Hillary: Jake’s actually a friend, kind of. I’m looking for him too.

Bella: (frowns) I thought his name was Drommen. Maybe that’s his last name.

Hillary: (frowns and turns up lip) We can’t be talking about the same guy then. I heard that Drommen guy is a pervert. Jake is really nice.

Bella: No way. Drommen is really nice. He can’t be a perv …

Hillary stares out the window. Bella gazes down the aisle.

Both: (turning to speak to each other) Always wears a black trench coat?

Hillary: Shit.

Bella: Shit is right.

Brandon and Jordan

 

Brandon: What did you get Marissa for Christmas?

Jordan: (pulls a small box out of a bag) I got her a ring. Wanna see it?

Brandon: Sure.

Jordan opens the box.

Brandon: Holy shit, man, is that an engagement ring?

Jordan: Yep.

Brandon: It’s been what, two months since you started dating?

Jordan: Yep.

Brandon: And you’re that sure you want to, like, settle down and shit?

Jordan: Yep.

Brandon: Is she pregnant?

Jordan: (frowns) No. We haven’t even gone all the way.

Brandon: You’re nuts, man.

Jordan: Whadda you mean?

Brandon: Isn’t that like putting the cart before the horse? Buyin’ the goods before they’re tested or something like that?

Jordan: And what’s wrong with that?

Brandon: I dunno… (shakes head) I always said you were a bit loose in the head.

Jordan: (smiles) At least I might not have to break anything else.

Brandon: Fuck, yeah. I forgot who I was talking to for a minute.

Andrea and Lacey

 

Andrea: So my mom’s got this new boyfriend, right?

Lacey: Again?

Andrea: What do you mean, again? She hasn’t had one in, like, a month. Anyways, he comes over last night, and he’s, like, completely shitfaced, right?

Lacey: No!

Andrea: So yeah, so he’s, like, staggering all over the place, and he just got out of his car. He comes in and he says to me, “You know, you’re even better-looking than your mom.” And I’m like, “EW, how can you say that with my mom just standing there?”

Lacey: No way!

Andrea: Exactly, right? But my mom just laughed it off. She wanted to go to this restaurant where they had, like, this reservation?

Lacey: That’s …

Andrea: Incredible, right? My mom’s like such a crazy bitch.

Lacey: She really is!

Andrea: Well she’s not THAT crazy. At least she drove.

Andrea and Lacey

 

Andrea: So you’ll never guess what I heard at work.

Lacey: What?

Andrea: Christmas music. One fucking day after Hallowe’en. Can you believe it?

Lacey: No way!

Andrea: I wouldn’t have even noticed it if this guy hadn’t been whistling to it when he came in.

Lacey: Like he …

Andrea: … liked it or something. Exactly! I mean, who likes Christmas music the day after Hallowe’en? Like, we haven’t even got all the decorations down. But at least the guy was hot.

Lacey: Pfft. Too bad.

Andrea: What do you mean “too bad”? (shrugs) I flirted with him a bit.

Lacey: No!

Andrea: Yep. And I asked him out. We’re getting together next week.

Lacey: Seriously? What are you gonna do if …

Andrea: If he starts whistling Christmas music again? What do you think? Dump his ass!

Friendship – #tuesdayuseitinasentence

Anyone who is my friend, knows to be patient. I can go for years without talking to people, but that doesn’t mean, in my mind at least, that the friendship no longer exists.

One-Liner Wednesday – On Taking a Joke

A conversation between my best friend, John, and I:

Me: I need Tylenol.

John: Where’s the pain?

Me: My head, my shoulder, my hips, my ass.

John: (smiles)

Me: But that last one I’ll have to give you Tylenol for.
