Phyllis (and Zoey)

 

Phyllis sits in the aisle seat. Zoey approaches.

Zoey: Excuse me, may I sit there?

Phyllis: (looks up with a snarl) I knew you were going to ask me that.

Phyllis moves to the window seat and Zoey sits.

Zoey: Thanks.

Phyllis: (waves her hand) Think nothing of it.

They sit quietly for a few stops.

Phyllis: There’s going to be three people waiting at the next stop.

Zoey: Ookay.

Phyllis: What? You don’t believe me?

Zoey: No, sure. I believe you.

Phyllis: I’m psychic. That’s how I knew you were going to ask me to move.

Zoey: (raises one eyebrow) Hm.

The bus stops and three people get on.

Phyllis: (smirks) See? Told you.

Zoey looks at her but says nothing.

Phyllis: You think I’m crazy don’t you?

Zoey: No …?

Phyllis: I’ll prove it again. Next stop is going to be five people getting on.

Zoey: Oookay.

The bus stops and four people get on.

Zoey turns to Phyllis, eyebrows raised.

Phyllis: It’s because I have a skeptic sitting beside me. (flicks hands at Zoey) Go away! You’re blocking my abilities!

Zoey shakes her head and changes seats.

Smiley: Nice puppy you’ve got there, eh?

Rachael: (turns to him) What … are you talking about?

Smiley: (points to her lap) Your puppy.

Rachael: (looks down, turns up palms) I don’t have a puppy.

Smiley: What’s that then?

Rachael: I don’t have anything.

Smiley: (smiling) Pretend, eh?

Rachael: No. (turns away and looks out the window)

Smiley: You know, if you act like that, your puppy’s gonna bite you.

Rachael: (mumbles in the direction of the window) Maybe you should go away before it bites you.

Smiley: (chuckles) Now you’re talkin’!

Captain Longsight (and Zoey)

 

Captain Longsight sits at the window. Zoey takes the seat beside him.

Captain Longsight: (pulls binoculars from bag and peers through them out the window) Holy Shamoly!

Zoey: What?

Captain Longsight: There’s a crime going on down that sidestreet!

Zoey: (holds hand out for the binoculars) Can I see?

Captain Longsight: There’s no way you can see it.

Zoey: Why not? The bus isn’t going anywhere.

Captain Longsight: It’s not that. It’s just I have amazing powers of being able to see long distances.

Zoey: (laughs) Of course you can. You have binoculars.

Captain Longsight: Oh these? (holds up binoculars) These don’t matter. I’m Captain Longsight. I was born with extraordinary powers of farsightedness.

Zoey: Soo … why do you carry binoculars?

Captain Longsight: Well … You wouldn’t understand.

Zoey: Try me.

Captain Longsight: They were a gift.

Zoey: Kinda like your gift of farsightedness?

Captain Longsight: N0! Like a birthday gift.

Zoey: Huh. So, Captain Longsight, do you fight crime with your superpowers?

Captain Longsight: (pulls cell phone out of pocket and smiles) I call the cops!

Zoey: Hooray. (changes seats)

Twitter is Bizarre

I just had some random, young buxom blond on Twitter put me on her “delicious” list. I swear to God, no one on Twitter has tasted me. That I know of.

I find it interesting when celebrities follow me. Most of the time, if I follow them back, they unfollow me. It’s how they get the high numbers. So I don’t follow them but I keep them on my radar to see how long they’ll hang on. So far I’ve had the group, Foreigner, Kim Mitchell, Taye Diggs (I think he follows everyone), Braxton Cosby (Bill’s nephew), and the woman who voices Siri, among others attach themselves to my feed. Oh, and Sigmund Freud, but I don’t think it was really him.

There are some seriously weird attention-graspers over on Twitter.
