I Couldn't Make This Shit Up

A play in One Act, One Scene.

By way of background, Elton John just came on the radio at work. "Bennie and the Jets." The resulting conversation took place:

Sandy: Shit, I always said Elton John should have been born black.
Zach: He's gay, that's pretty close.
S: Elton John is GAY? You're kidding me!
Z: [stunned silence]
S: Well, I guess I should have known. I just saw on the news he's getting one of those same-sex marriages.
Z: Yeah, only the gays are interested in that.
S: I may not be too quick, but I can break it down.

Sandy then starts to sing "Bennie and the Jets" and, indeed, breaks it down as promised.

S: Shit, you know who else should be black? The Doobie Brothers.

"Right Here Waiting" by Richard Marx comes on the radio. Sandy continues to sing "Bennie and the Jets."

End Scene.

    Please ask Sandy to come to Quiz night. Can you imagine how SHE would handle cheaters in the bathroom?! --Karen
