(The scene starts outside of an antique shop, Del’s Antiques. The time is 11:45 a.m. The date is March 27, 2012. Housewives with strollers pass by, dogs inside instead of children. Jose and Kelly are pretty baked.)
(Enter Kelly and Jose.
Del: (Sitting behind a huge wooden desk, there is not much color to her navy pant suit, except for the Hermes scarf around her neck, which has some yellow and red. She’s well over the age of 60. Her make-up is simple, dark eyeshadow, maroon lipstick. Her hair looks freshly highlighted.) Who is this you have with you, Kelly?
Jose: (Before Kelly can even answer the question he introduces himself.) Hi! Del! My name is Jose, it’s very nice to meet you. (He looks around the antique shop, instantly drawn to every mirror.) There are some really beautiful items in your store, are you the buyer?
Del: I used to do most of the buying, but I can’t move around very easily anymore. My son buys now. He goes to Europe and that’s where I get most of my stuff. What’s for lunch today?
Kelly: Today I was able to get a good amount of veggies. Let’s see. (Kelly pulls out the lunch from a cooler on wheels.) There’s an avocado, some green beans, cucumber, broccoli, mushrooms… (Del throws out a complaint about how thickly cut the mushrooms are sometimes.) …black olives, and a balsamic vinaigrette.
Del: Looks delicious, did you bring my chips?
(More to come.)
