Candice (and Phil)
Phil: (approaches Candice sitting at the window) Mind if I sit here?
Candice: Go right ahead.
Phil: I’m sorry, I’m not very good at bus etiquette. I don’t take the bus.
Candice: (nods) Oh.
Phil: My car broke down.
Candice: That’s too bad.
Phil: I work in an office downtown and I usually drive.
Candice: (nods) I see.
Phil: My car has been in the shop for almost two weeks now.
Candice: You must really miss it.
Phil: I do. They think it’s something to do with the alternator, but I think it’s a computer problem.
Candice: (nods) Ahh.
Phil: I work on computers all day so I know a thing or two about computers.
Candice: I see.
Phil: So what do you do for a living?
Candice: I’m a dominatrix.
Phil stares, mouth hanging open.
Candice: I work in a dungeon where I tie up men and occasionally women and I torture them for money.
Phil, frozen, continues to stare.
Candice: I take it you’ve never tried it?
Phil takes out his cell phone and dials a number. Candice watches him.
Phil: (into the phone) Yeah, Discount Car Rental? Do you have any cars available? …. Now. ….Where? (holds the phone away from his ear and speaks to Candice, enunciating as though talking to a Deaf person) What’s. The. Next. Stop?
Next stop: Saturday, September 27th, 10:00pm
