Insignificant Other

Snippet:

ROWAN

Hi! It’s Landry, right?

LANDRY

Yeah, Ellis?

ELLIS

THAT would be me!

ELLIS launches herself from the couch,

extending a hand with all of the grace

a woman delusional of her social stature

could possibly muster.

 

ROWAN

Ellis is the one who invited you, but we meet at my place.

LANDRY

Okay.

ELLIS

Landry?

LANDRY

Yes?

ELLIS

No, no I’m just checking that I heard you right, it’s LANDRY, yes?

LANDRY

Yes?

ELLIS

It’s just that--oh nevermind! So! (steps back, gesturing grandly at the apartment) Welcome to my little Ro’s humble abode.

LANDRY

(to ROWAN) It’s nice.

ELLIS

It’s not what I would have done, but then we can’t all have the same taste or the world would be stupid and boring. What’s your taste Landry?

LANDRY

Um what?

ROWAN

Ellis, maybe we can let them in before we start the personality tests? Landry, I have mimosas in the kitchen, would you like one? Or if you don’t drink, I have some other options--?

LANDRY

Oh I drink. And (looking at ELLIS) yeah I’ll definitely drink.
