An excerpt …

Author’s Note: This is intended to be a smooth conversation, not a series of stand-up punch lines. SHE is very quick, not dumb.

(At open, the actors are seated in the front seat of a car. HE is driving.)

HE: Did you turn off the coffee pot?

SHE: Yes, did you lock the front door?

HE: Yes, I did. The house is secure.

SHE: So is the coffee pot.

HE: Then we can continue our drive with relaxed confidence.

SHE: Unless our car breaks down.

HE: Relax. Sit back and enjoy the trip.

SHE: Take a right at the corner. Be careful. This is two-lane, you know.

HE: Yes, I see that. I won’t confuse this with the Interstate. What I hate about driving on the Interstate is that the trucks just blow right past us regardless of how fast we go. I’m a good driver but those semis are intimidating.

SHE: Why is it called a semi?

HE: Because that’s the kind of truck it is.

SHE: No … There has to be more. A semi is only part way. A semi-final is right before the final. Semi-sweet is close to sweet but not quite. A semi-colon is almost a colon. Semi-retired is still working. So if that is a semi-truck, what do they call a full truck?

HE: They call a full truck … “over the weight limit” … probably. They call it a full truck. That’s the answer.

SHE: Really?

HE: Yes. I have it on good authority.

SHE: You’re like a little boy chasing the firetruck to see where it’s going. Why do you feel you have to catch the trucks? You always go over the speed limit. You’re going to get arrested.

HE: Why won’t you let me use the radar detector?

SHE: If you’re going the speed limit you don’t need to detect any radar. Airplanes need radar. Cars don’t. Take a right at this corner.

HE: I know where we’re going.

SHE: That’s good because you would never stop and ask directions.
