"I Think I’m A Stalker"
from "LOSERS IN LOVE"
by D. M. Larson
(JANE enters cafe' and goes up to JENNY)
Hey, Jane. You’re usual?
Sure… have you seen Tony?
You just missed him.
I had an awkward moment this morning.
Tony wet the bed again?
Very funny. Never mind.
I’m sorry. You can talk to me. We’re practically almost sisters.
I figure Tony and Frank are almost like brothers and we’re in serious relationships with them so we’re nearly almost sisters now.
Well… I had the weirdest revelation this morning.
Do tell? Wait, let me guess. Was it that you realized how pretty Tony is and if you put him in a dress that he’d look a little too good as a woman?
What? No! What are you talking about?
Never mind. I have weird thoughts like that.
I think I’m doing something pretty weird too.
Really? Please tell me.
No jokes if I do.
I think I’m a stalker.
This is good. Who are you stalking?
But… you already got him.
But I’m doing creepy stuff like putting pictures of him on my wall. He showed me all these old pictures of him from when he was in high school and college and I kept some of them. I woke up and looked all the pictures on my bedroom wall and suddenly felt like a stalker. I wonder if I’m creeping him out.
Trust me… he’s very into you… he loves being stalked by you.
I hope so.
I know so.
Thanks Jenny. But promise me you’ll tell me if I’m getting too creepy.
As long as you don’t start knitting things out of his hair, then we’re okay.
You’re not are you?
No! I was only kidding. Tell Tony I was looking for him.
Why don’t you text him or something?
No cell phone. I’m finally free of the financial and invasive stress of having one.
I don’t think I could live without my phone.
Not only do I live without mine. I live better.
Everyone here is living… I think.
(Everyone in the cafe is on some kind of electronic device)
We should all get together some time and unplug. It could be fun.
Hmmm… I don’t know.
(JENNY gives JANE her drink)
Thanks for the drink. I better go. I think I have somewhere to be. Maybe I’ll take a walk in the park while I try to remember where it was.
(JANE leaves happily. JENNY looks at her phone and all the people in the cafe on their phones. She sighs and goes back to work)
