BRIGITTE waiting for her friend LUISA by the front door of LUISA’S house.
BRIGITTE is wearing shorts and a crop top.
BRIGITTE: We’re going to be late!
LUISA (Offstage):I’m coming! I’m coming!
BRIGITTE: We’ve got to go!
LUISA (Offstage):I know! One second!
BRIGITTE: One second from now is not now!
LUISA (Offstage):Stop being a smartass just shut up and wait.
BRIGITTE paces about and fans herself.
BRIGITTE: It’s so hot!
LUISA (Offstage):Is it?
BRIGITTE: Radio said it’s the hottest day in the past three years!
BRIGITTE: I’m going to stand by your AC. Call me when you’re ready. Hurry up.
A brief moment passes and LUISA walks down the steps.
She is bundled up in a long pants, a sweater and a coat.
LUISA: Let’s go Brigitte!
She sees LUISA’s outfit and freezes.
LUISA: Thanks for waiting for me.
BRIGITTE: What the hell are you wearing?
LUISA: I don’t know how to answer that question.
BRIGITTE: Aren’t you hot?
BRIGITTE: Then why are you wearing that?
LUISA: Oh. That’s easy to answer.
LUISA: I was feeling down today and I thought to myself how I always feel better during the holidays so I put on my favorite holiday season outfit and it made me feel better. So… I’m going to keep it on.
BRIGITTE: Well ok. You read to go?
LUISA: Ready to go.
BRIGITTE: I’ll put the AC on in the car.
LUISA: Thank you!
BRIGITTE and LUISA exit.
