171. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right

Wednesday, February 18th, 5:00pm
Michael (and DeeDee)

 

Michael sits at the window, reading. DeeDee takes the seat beside him.

DeeDee: (clears throat) Excuse me, sir?

Michael: I’m reading.

DeeDee: (shifts nervously in the seat) I’d like to interrupt you, if I may.

Michael: (looks up for the first time and does a double take) What for?

DeeDee: I’m sorry, but I’d like to ask you to help me. I’m doing a project for college and I need to interview someone on the bus.

Michael: (smiles and tucks his book into his briefcase) I’d be pleased to help out.

DeeDee: (exhales deeply) Thank you!

Michael observes her as she bends to pull a notepad out of her back pack.

DeeDee: (holds up finger) I’m almost ready.

Michael: Take your time.

DeeDee: Here we go. (straightens and holds a banana up to Michael’s face) First question: What would you say is the strangest thing you’ve ever seen on the bus?

Michael: (hesitates) You’re… joking, right?

DeeDee: About what?

Michael: You’re interviewing me with a banana.

DeeDee: No I’m not. (holds up notepad) It’s a notepad.

Michael shakes his head and goes back to reading.
