An excerpt …

(The narrator helps to explain love.)

OMNI: When it happens to you, it’s brand-new and exciting and … Look, this is really important stuff, and if you need to take notes, go right ahead. Of course, love is also rather … visual … so you may just want to watch.

GIRL: Oh joy!

BOY: Wow!

BOY: She’s cute!

GIRL: I’m in love!

BOY: She’s awesome!

GIRL: I’m in love!

BOY: I like to … you know … look at her a lot!

GIRL: I’m … in love!

BOY: Oh, look! A sunset! Hold my hand! Quick!

GIRL: Awww …

OMNI: And so it begins

(They interpret things differently.)

BOY: (goes to seated girl holding an imaginary cafeteria tray) Hey! I see you everywhere! Anybody eating with you?

GIRL: (shrugs, then) No. I guess not.

BOY: Could I … you know …?

GIRL: Why not?

OMNI: His story!

BOY: I was just sittin’ there mindin’ my own business when she walks right up to me and asks if she could eat lunch with me. I didn’t do a thing! Honest! She thinks I’m cool.

OMNI: Yeh. And her version …

GIRL: He practically fell all over me trying to sit down. I mean the guy was really out of it. I don’t think I ate a thing … he wanted to talk the entire lunch period! I think he really likes me.

(Love isn’t always lovely.)

OMNI: Love! A series of bad connections! It’s not tripping merrily over a pasture of flowers or running through fragrant streams … More like climbing a mountain. There are peaks!

GIRL: I couldn’t sleep all night! I kept thinking of him!

BOY: I washed my car three times this week! 

OMNI: And then the valleys

GIRL: What do you mean you’re busy?

BOY: I wanna spend time with my friends.

GIRL: Friends? What am I?

BOY: You’re … you know … like a sister.

GIRL: (crying) Ahhhh!
