Jack And Jill Plays - Part 9 - Sprite


About Jack and Jill Plays:


This is a new thing I'm doing.  Posting a short play every day as long as I can.  This does not mean that I wrote this play today but I might have.  (My life is not always my own what with work and a 4 year old running around so maybe I wrote it today or maybe it was stockpiled in preparation for the days I can't get in writing.)  My goal is to do at least 100 of these or maybe more but probably 45 or 50 is the length of a full length play so even that would be good.  100 would be better.  300?  amazing.  500?  Does anyone want 500 of these plays?  Anyway, the goal is consecutive days.

The normal things about plays apply-- don't produce or reproduce this play without my permission.  I wrote it so I own it.  Etc.

JILL
Hi Jack.

JACK
Hi Jill.

JILL
Seems like we're always running into each other.

JACK
Yup.

JILL
Even after the divorce.

JACK
I think I see you more now.

JILL
Could be.

JACK
I'm like, wait, is that Jill?  Why did I leave my apartment?

JILL
It's not so bad...

JACK
I didn't mean--

JILL
To see me.

JACK
Oh, I know.  There's just, you know.

JILL
Baggage.

JACK
History.

JILL
Okay.

JACK
So, uh . . . how's everything?

JILL
You know, for the first few months it's been quiet, uneventful.  The days were gray and passed without me noticing.  And then a couple days ago, something opened for me.  A buzzing stopped I hadn't noticed until it was over.  I went outside and the sun was out.  I took a book and I could really see the words on the page and I could look up and be present, feel my feet on the ground.  I'm not saying every day will be better now but I think I got past something that was itching under my skin.  You know what I'm saying?

JACK
You miss me.

JILL
I'm saying life after you can be good.

JACK
Yeah.  Yeah.  For me too.  Yeah.

JILL
Well, good to see you.

JACK
I miss you.  I can't sleep.  Nothing tastes good.  Everything hurts.

JILL
Uh.

JACK
Can we get our divorce annulled?

JILL
I don't think that's a thing.

JACK
Remarried, then.

JILL
I don't think that's a good idea.

JACK
Yeah.  Okay.  Yeah.

JILL
We could have dinner though.  Or like a soft drink.

JACK
Okay.  Yeah.  Okay.  I'll buy some Sprite.

JILL
I don't drink that any more.
