Day 47 – phone

Two friends in a pub.

Who is she then?

What are you talking about?

The girl?

What girl?

You’ve been checking your phone every two minutes all night. That means there’s a girl.

No I haven’t.

Mate.

Fine. But it doesn’t necessarily mean there’s a girl.

Sure.

I could be checking that I haven’t heard from work, or the doctors, or my mum.

Right.

Phone beeps

They look at it, then at each other, then back at the phone.

You gonna check that then?

Maybe later.

Okay.

Pause

Reaches out and grabs phone to check it.

You smile like that when your mom texts you? Dude that some Oedipus shit right there.

Shut up.
