Juliette (and Drommen)
Juliette sits at the window. Drommen takes the seat beside her.
Juliette: Please be gentle.
Drommen: I beg your pardon Madame?
Juliette: Well, you see, this is my first time on a bus and you are the first man to sit beside me.
Drommen: Ah. I see. Common bus etiquette demands that I at least introduce myself. I’m Jake.
Juliette: (smiles and extends gloved hand) I’m Juliette. It’s very nice to meet you Jake.
Drommen: (takes her hand and kisses the back of it) My pleasure entirely.
Juliette: I’d heard so many horror stories about taking the bus. I’m happy to find they’ve proven unfounded.
Drommen: I’m sure whatever you’ve heard is total nonsense. I try to come on the bus as often as I can, and there are few worse than myself.
Juliette: Well then. If you are just about as bad as it gets, I shall cease to worry.
Drommen: Quite right. I was going to ask you… would you mind if I…
Drommen: … change seats with you? I have a long way to go.
Juliette: Not at all.
Next stop: Friday, June 26th, 7:00pm
