WINNY: That was awful.
(BOPPY goes to bench sniffing. PAUL watches but stays by bush. UNICORN sneaks behind bush)

(PAUL sneezes again. UNICORN runs off)
PAUL: What is going on?
(BOPPY runs back to bush)
WINNY: Are you coming down with something?
PAUL: I don’t feel sick. It’s more like allergies.
WINNY: What are you allergic to?
PAUL: I didn’t think I was allergic to anything.
WINNY: Everyone is allergic to something.
PAUL: Is that so? That a proven medical fact?
WINNY: I read it on the internet.
PAUL: Well, then it must be true if you read it online.
(BOPPY goes crazy when UNICORN tries sneaking by. PAUL turns and bumps into UNICORN. PAUL yelps and sneezes violently and falls down at WINNY’s feet. BOPPY chases UNICORN off stage. WINNY doesn’t look up from her tablet)
WINNY: Bless you.
(PAUL moans. WINNY looks)
WINNY: You okay?
PAUL: Not really.
WINNY: Why’d fall down?
PAUL: You wouldn’t believe me if I told you.
WINNY: Why not?
PAUL: I think I know what’s making me sneeze?
PAUL: A unicorn.
WINNY: Did you say unicorn?
WINNY: There’s no such thing as unicorns.
(WINNY goes back to looking at her phone. BOPPY chases UNICORN across the stage and they both steps on PAUL. PAUL has a sneezing fit and rolls around on the ground)
WINNY: Please stop that. You’re embarrassing yourself.
(PAUL sneezes after each word)
PAUL: Didn’t… you… see… uh…. Uni… uni…
WINNY: What’s Boppy barking at anyway?
PAUL: Uh… uh… uni… uni…
WINNY: Oh, now Boppy is seeing unicorns too.
(BOPPY returns and plops down on PAUL)
PAUL: Get off.
(PAUL struggles to get BOPPY off)

(BOPPY shakes head excitedly)

(They go back to their original positions at the start of the play: WINNY on her phone, PAUL with his bag of food and BOPPY in a weird position on the ground)
PAUL: I’m always randomly sneezing. I wonder if it is unicorns that cause that?
WINNY: Sure, Paul. That seems possible. I suspect that there is an invisible unicorn around every time you sneeze.
(PAUL mumbles annoyed)
PAUL: They’re not always invisible.
(UNICORN sneaks up and steals WINNY’s phone. PAUL sneezes. BOPPY has fallen asleep and doesn’t react. UNICORN runs off)

(BOPPY wakes up startled)
WINNY: Go get that unicorn!
(BOPPY goes sniffing around. UNICORN is hiding behind bush)
PAUL: I can’t believe we saw a real unicorn.
WINNY: Are their real unicorns? I thought they were made up. I wish I had my phone so I could look that up.
PAUL: I think it’s safe to say that this is unusual.
(BOPPY finds UNICORN behind bush)
WINNY: Boppy found the unicorn! Get my phone!
PAUL: You get it. I can’t go near it. I’ll sneeze myself to death.
WINNY: I don’t think anyone has ever died from a sneeze attack.
PAUL: How can you know for sure without your phone?
WINNY: Give me my phone back, unicorn!
(BOPPY drags UNICORN out.PAUL backs away. UNICORN holds up phone. WINNY grabs it)

(UNICORN nods sadly)
(WINNY sighs and changes her tone)

(UNICORN nods sadly)

(WINNY sits on the bench with her arms crossed, pouting. PAUL struggles over the bench and overdramatically pulls himself next to her)

PAUL: I’m so sorry.
(PAUL falls to the ground and passes out. BOPPY returns and lays on him)
