Sunday, August 19th, 5:00pm
Danielle (and Dale)

 

Danielle sits at the window. Dale takes the seat beside her.

Dale: Hey, Danny, long time no see.

Danielle: (frowning) Yeah …

Dale: What’s new with you?

Danielle: Oh, you know.

Dale: Lots of changes for me. I just moved and stuff.

Danielle: Uh huh.

Dale: So, how’s the wife?

Danielle: I … don’t have a wife.

Dale: (one eyebrow raised) Didn’t you get married a while ago?

Danielle: Yeah, but I married a man.

Dale: Really? I didn’t know you were gay.

Danielle: I’m not.

Dale: (turning red) I’m sorry, I thought you were someone else.

Danielle turns to the window, self-consciously rubbing the dark hair on her upper lip.

Wednesday, July 4th, 5:00pm
Cary (and DeeDee)

 

Cary sits at the window. DeeDee takes the seat beside him.

DeeDee: Oh my God, I don’t believe it.

Cary: What?

DeeDee: It’s you! Can I get your autograph?

Cary: Whatever for?

DeeDee: You’re the guy!

Cary: What guy?

DeeDee: The guy who wrote that book. You know the one … that book!

Cary: I didn’t think anyone had read my book. (smiles) Do you have something I can write on?

DeeDee: Yeah! (searches through her purse and comes out with a pen and paper) Sign it to DeeDee please.

Cary signs her paper. DeeDee looks at the signature.

DeeDee: Thank you so much, Mr. …

Cary: Thomson. Cary Thomson.

DeeDee: (stares, confused) Wait, what book did you write?

Cary: The Strange Disappearance of the Hippopotamus on the Night of All Hallows Eve.

DeeDee: Not that other one? About the War of 1812?

Cary: Sadly, no.

DeeDee: Never mind then. (crumples up paper)

Cary turns to the window, dejected.
