THE MONDAY

Street view shot of Monk’s Cafe mid-morning traffic. George sits opposite Kramer in the normal booth, who is nearer to the door. There are menus, two water glasses, salt and pepper, coffee creamer and sugar, and a napkin dispenser on the table.

KRAMER: What are you gonna eat?

GEORGE: I’m still deciding.

KRAMER: Well what are you looking at?

GEORGE: I’m narrowing it down.

KRAMER: Oh. . . Hey George?

GEORGE: What!? Did I bother you when you were looking? Just give me a minute over here!

KRAMER: Oh. . . Yah. I guess that’s fair. It’s just that. . .

GEORGE: finally moves menu to look Kramer in the eye and motions ‘spit it out roll’ with hand.

KRAMER: Can you move to your left.

GEORGE: Excuse me?

KRAMER: Your left.

GEORGE: Impatiently. Why?

KRAMER: Your head it’s reflecting the light right into my eye.

GEORGE: Pulls a tin of wax from his pocket and polishes his head. Oh. . . Really?

KRAMER: Yup.

Jerry enters through cafe door.

JERRY: Georgie boy, K-man, what’s happening? He shoos Kramer over and takes his seat.

GEORGE: You’re in a good mood. I guess somebody has to be. Where were ya?

JERRY: I just woke up. Got tied up last night with Luna. Raises his eyebrows and sighs. I’ll tell you about it later.

KRAMER: Que Bueno! No?

GEORGE: What kind of a name is Luna?

JERRY: She’s from California.

GEORGE: nods. Alright. I know what I want.

JERRY: puts hand up, and appears to be blinded. Well whatever you get, make sure you get some more Crisco for that disco ball on top of your neck.

KRAMER: Chuckles.

GEORGE: Oh go ahead. What are we in third grade? Enough with the bald jokes.

KRAMER: You’ve been bald since third grade?

Elaine enters, looking disheveled.

George is thrilled to have an opportunity to divert attention from his cranium.

GEORGE: Elaine, you ok?

JERRY: What happened?

ELAINE: Sits down next to George. I thought I ordered a virgin bloody mary this morning, widens eyes and purses lips, then I had a dentist appointment and I now have this awful headache.

JERRY: With Whatley?

ELAINE: Yeah, I had to have a filling re-done. I had the laughing gas.

JERRY: Well I wouldn’t worry about it. Have some water. slides her a glass of water.

ELAINE: Thanks, Jer.

GEORGE: That was my water!

JERRY: Well, get another one.

GEORGE: You don’t understand I had exactly the right amount of lemon in it.

ELAINE: takes a sip. No, not quite. It’s a bit much for me.

KRAMER: Let me see. takes it from Elaine’s hand. HMM. No, she’s right. If you put a sweetener in there it’ll even it out.

GEORGE: You know now that everyone has touched it, tasted it, and criticized it, I’m really not thirsty anymore.

JERRY: Well that worked out. Kramer, did you end up putting money on the Super Bowl?

KRAMER: Yeah.

GEORGE: So, how’d you do?

KRAMER: Eh-Guh-guh-guh fwwwww. flicks hand.

ELAINE: Serves you right, gambling when you could be doing something useful with your money, something selfless, you might as well have donated it to charity.

KRAMER: But I won too.

GEORGE: What do you mean.

KRAMER: I lost the spread on the game, but I won the net punting average.

JERRY: You bet on the punting?

KRAMER: scoffs. Jerry, you can’t put all your eggs in one barrel.

JERRY: Well, I suppose if you’re going to bet on punting, you might as well put your eggs in a barrel.

ELAIN: My head feels like a barrel of eggs. . .

GEORGE: So are you up or down?

KRAMER: Up. I think. . . he calculates using his fingers. I also lost the number of field goals, but then I won on the number of back-up dancers in the halftime show.

One thought on “The Monday

  1. I thought it was good. Several laughs. Very accurate in the style of the show’s writing.

    P.S. I find It difficult to read white print on a pale blue background.
