Hi Jen, what's up? Say, you don't happen to
know this girl named Lydia that goes to our school, do you? She's in our
World History class. She sits in the back...You know... the girl with
the light brown hair and the big beautiful smile. (beat) Yeah, that's
the one. What do you think of her? I totally want to go out with her,
but I don't even think she notices me. You got any ideas? (beat) Well,
I've tried a couple of times to ask her out, but whenever I seem to get
close to her, it's like she see's right through me, like I don't even
exist. It's like I could stand in between her and the girl she's talking
too, and I would even be interrupting them. (beat) What are you talking
about, I don't want to ask anybody else. I want to go out with her. I
feel like she's everything I want in a girlfriend. (beat) How would I
know if we have anything in common, I can't seem to get close enough to
find out. (beat) What?...I know I don't NEED a girlfriend, but I want
one. (pauses/gets a bad feeling) Hey, wait a minute, what are you trying
to do here? Jinx it!...You're supposed to be helping me out, what's got
into you!? I've never seen you like this before. (beat) Like what?...You
know what! (pauses for a second/ light bulb goes off in his head!) Oh
my Gosh!...Jen!...Oh my Gosh! I am so sorry...I get it now. (giggles in
disbelief) Jen, oh no...I'm not laughing at you, I guess I never thought
of you that way. You just caught me by surprise. (beat) I DO like you!
(beat) You ARE beautiful! (beat) I don't know, I guess I never knew, but
to be real honest with you Jen, I like our relationship the way it is.
Jen!?...Please!...Where are you going?...Why are you so mad!?...Jen, COME
BACK! I know we can work this out...(to himself) Okay great! Now I've
done it. (reflects) Yep, I think it's time to rethink this.
