fallehuckinglujah

Fallehuckinglujah is my comment on the power of words; it's a bastardization of Hallef***inglujah, which I am wont to say in moments of joy but cannot because of the f*** part. If, however, I switch the f and the h it retains the same feeling but is no longer obscene. Same feeling, same letters, only two letters switched but one is verboten and the other is, well, not

Plot device

13 November 2017 by admin

OB “What we need is a plot device.”

YB “Like what?”

OB “Like Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru. You know? Major motivation. Or The Searchers. Martha died real bad. That drove the story.”

YB “So which one of us dies?”

OB “It doesn’t have to be death. That’s just a nice juicy one.”

New character, Dan, walks up. OB recognizes him.

OB “Oh, hey, Dan.”

Dan “Shut up! Where’s my money?”

OB “Money? I don’t owe you money.”

Awkwardly, Dan backtracks.

Dan “Well, how about I got Bobbie pregnant.”

Susie spews her tea on Bobbie. Bobbie wipes her face with a napkin.

Bobbie, angrily at Susie “Don’t do that!”

OB “Dan, a plot device has to be part of a character. My character would never owe your character money and I changed Bobbie’s diaper so if she has a vagina she installed it in secret.”

Susie spews her tea on Bobbie. Bobbie wipes her face with a napkin.

Bobbie, angrier still, at Susie.

Bobbie “Stop doing that!”

YB, to OB, slyly.

YB “Or you could admit you’re really in love with Judy.”

Susie spews her tea on Bobbie. Bobbie wipes her face with a napkin.

Bobbie, furious at Susie.

“Jesus Christ, Susie!”

Susie, to OB.

“What is he talking about?”

OB, nervously.

OB “What? Just because he says it doesn’t make it true. Good plot device, though.”

Susie “Tell me it’s not true!”

OB, loudly “I do not love Judy!”

Judy walks up.

OB sees her, embarrassed.

OB “Oh, hey, Judy.”

Judy “I don’t love you either.”

Judy to Dan “Do you need something? This table’s occupied.”

Dan backs away, mumbling.

Bobbie to Judy, pointing at Susie “She does not get any more tea.”
