Beside him is a glass and a bottle of bourbon.
ED picks up his glass and puts it to his lips to drink but realizes it is empty.
ED puts the glass down and picks up the bourbon.
As picks up the bottle he hears music from outside.
Nat King Cole’s rendition of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”
ED: Yeah. Whatever…
ED pours the bourbon into his class and takes a slow sip as the music continues to play.
ED starts to cap the bottle of bourbon but decides to toss it across the trailer instead.
ED lies on the floor.
END OF PLAY.
