Jack And Jill Plays - Part 37 - Cookie




About Jack and Jill Plays:

This is a new thing I'm doing.  Posting a short play every day as long as I can.  

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


Cookie
by Adam Szymkowicz

(JACK looks at a cookie in his hand.  JILL watches him.)

JACK
What if I don't like it?  It might be good or it might not be as good as I thought it would be.  And then it would all be wasted on a mediocre cookie.

JILL
I'll eat it if you don't want it.

JACK
You don't like cookies like this cookie.

JILL
I know but I want you to stop looking at it.

JACK
I should just eat it, right?  I should just eat it.

JILL
You should just eat it.

JACK
Do you think I eat too much?

JILL
Yes.

JACK
So maybe I shouldn't eat it.

JILL
Okay, then don't.  Put it away then.

JACK
I want something though.  Just a little special something and maybe this cookie could be that something.

JILL
Maybe.

JACK
I'll just eat it.

JILL
Okay.

JACK
But if I eat it, maybe no ice cream later.

JILL
Okay.

JACK
But what if the ice cream is a lot better than this cookie and I eat the cookie and then I'm fat and everything so no ice cream?

JILL
Yeah I don't know.  You know what I've been thinking about?

JACK
No.

JILL
Borders and boundaries and permeable membranes.  Like Our skin can soak things up--certain things.  Isn't that terrifying?

JACK
Is it?

JILL
Just eat the cookie and we can go on with our lives.

(JACK looks at the cookie for a long time.  JILL grabs it out of his hand throws it on the ground and stomps on it.)
