Jack And Jill Plays - Part 57 - Catch



Play belongs to me.  Ask me before doing anything with it.  Thanks.

Catch
by Adam Szymkowicz

(JACK and his son, JACOB are throwing a football back and forth.)

JACK
Son?

JACOB
Yes, dad?

JACK
I feel like in this moment I should give you advice.  Like man advice.  Like advice my father passed down from his father.

JACOB
Okay.

JACK
But I can't think of anything.

JACOB
It'll come.

JACK
You think?  What if I have nothing to give?  What if I don't know anything?

JACOB
You know everything.

JACK
Yeah.

JACOB
Everything.

JACK
Even if I don't.   This moment.  This moment is what life is about.

JACOB
Football?  Catch?

JACK
No.  You know what I mean.

JACOB
I have an idea.

JACK
I know what I want to tell you.

(JACK goes to throw the ball but JACOB is not there.  It sails past him or JACOB has exited.)

JACK
Oh right.  Oh right.  You never lived this long, did you?  Did you?
