An excerpt …
(An awkward conversation.)
TWO: I ... well, I was just wondering ...
ONE: Do I know you?
TWO: No. I don’t think so. It’s just that ...
ONE: Are you sick or something.
TWO: Sick? No. Not sick. It’s just tha ...
TWO: You’re ... uh ... you’re standing ... Listen, could you move over just a bit?
ONE: (a long take, strange request, then) Pardon me?
TWO: Could you just move over ... just a foot or two either direction?
ONE: (begins to chuckle, then checks himself) Why?
TWO: I ... I mean, it’s hard to explain. You’re ... uh ... you’re standing on my spot.
TWO: Are you new here?
ONE: No. Just early. I usually come later but it seemed like such a beautiful morning. I don’t know. I just thought I’d come here and wait. To this spot.
TWO: Oh. Oh, that explains it. I mean, I’m late and you’re early and ... well, we’ve probably been sharing the same spot for years and didn’t even know it.
ONE: No, I usually stand over there but this morning ... who knows why we do these things ... this morning I just decided to stand here. On this spot.
TWO: My spot.
ONE: I’m sorry, but it’s not your spot. Spots are free. They’re community property. There’re lots of spots around here. Take one. Look ... there’s a good one. Go stand in that spot.
(A twist in the plot.)
ONE: No. Never have. I lied to you. I knew that was your spot. I’ve watched you. I don’t think you ever noticed me, though. No one does when they’re in their spot. I’ve seen the way it made you happy. I’ve seen you dream your dreams there.
TWO: I never noticed.
ONE: Why should you? You were in your spot. You were content.
TWO: Look, I really had no idea ...
ONE: No. I appreciate your sympathy, but I really can’t take it. It embarrasses me. It’s bad enough to not have a spot, but in my life I’ve talked about it all I care to. (finally looks at TWO) Don’t worry about it. It’s really nothing new. I’ve dealt with it for a long time. It’s an old friend.
TWO: You’ve never had a spot?
