Jack And Jill Plays - Part 53 - Times Change



play written by me.  All right reserved.  For real.

Times Change
by Adam Szymkowicz

(JILL and a DINOSAUR smoke cigarettes or maybe they vape.)

DINOSAUR
So I said, "No, you're fired!"

JILL
To your boss?

DINOSAUR
Yeah.  It didn't make a lot of sense but it felt good in the moment.

JILL
You just described most of my decisions.

DINOSAUR
Sorry.

JILL
That's nice of you to say.  Sorry about your job.

DINOSAUR
I think this dinosaur wasn't meant to sit behind a desk.

JILL
Sure.

DINOSAUR
This dinosaur was meant to roam free.

JILL
So what then?

DINOSAUR
I'm going to teach English comp and go back on food stamps.

JILL
Solid plan.

DINOSAUR
But maybe something else will come along.

(They both look up at the sky.)

DINOSAUR
Been there a long time, hasn't it?

JILL
It's getting closer.

DINOSAUR
What is it?

JILL
Probably nothing. We can't worry about things that might happen.

DINOSAUR
You think it will smash into us?

JILL
Maybe.  I don't know.  Let's not worry about it.  You want to see a duck who's friends with a kitten?

DINOSAUR
Boy do I!

(JILL plays a video on her phone for DINOSAUR.)
