The Booty Call – A Very Short Screenplay

 

Opening: Night scene – Camera pans a woman’s upscale bedroom. The bedroom is neat and well decorated.  Woman is in bed, alone, and fast asleep. She may be sleeping in the nude, we can’t really tell.  Alarm clock on the night stand reads 1:15.  There is no sound, and then her cellphone rings.
 
(Groggily) Hello?
 
Hi.  It’s me, what’re you doing?
 
(not happy) I was sleeping.  (Testily) What do you want.
 
Nothing, I was just lying here, thinking how much I miss you, wanting to hear your voice.
 
Yeah, I miss you too, but we’ve been through all this… I thought we agreed not to call each other.
 
Are you alone?
 
(Sigh) Why are you calling?  Have you been drinking?
 
Yeah, I was out with the crew from work.  It’s what made me think of you, there were so many cute couples.
 
(Silence, then…) Remember, it was you who decided we should see other people.
 
Are you?  Seeing other people?
 
I don’t want to talk about it.
 
You want to come over and just cuddle?
 
THAT is definitely not a good idea. (A loud pop is heard over her phone, then a fizz)  What was that?
 
I just opened a perfectly chilled bottle of Billecart Salmon Brut Rose.  Am I drinking by myself?
 
I’ll be right over.

I've followed my passion for wine to the four corners of the world in endless pursuit of more wine knowledge and experiences. There are few things in life more enjoyable than experiencing a new culture through its wine and food. Leveraging these experiences, I curate a small portfolio of constantly evolving producers. Like an art gallery's collection, my portfolio consists of hand-crafted wines from artisanal producers that I have personally selected. My goal is to discover boutique wines that taste like they cost more than they do. Come discover your next favorite! www.DaveTheWineMerchant.com
