48. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right

Saturday, October 18th, 1:00pm
Captain Longsight (and Zoey)


Captain Longsight sits at the window. Zoey takes a 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 expectantly for the binoculars) Can I see?

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

Zoey: Of course I can 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) No, I call the cops!

Zoey: Hooray. (changes seats)
