Me and the Kid Next Door: A Micro Play

(WALKING DOG – LARGE MALAMUTE/HUSKY)

KID NEXT DOOR:  HEY

ME:  HEY

KID:  I LIKE YOUR DOG.

ME:  THANK YOU!

KID:  HEY, I’M THE KID THAT SAID THAT I LIKE YOUR DOG YESTERDAY.

ME:  I KNOW.  I REMEMBER.

KID:  HEY

ME:  HEY

KID:  I’M RICHARD.

ME:  I’M BARBARA.  THIS IS RIVER.

KID:  I KNOW.

(PAUSE)

KID:  I HAD A DREAM LAST NIGHT THAT I HAD A WOLF DOG AND HER NAME WAS RIVER.

ME:  THAT’S SO COOL.

END.

All names of humans have been changed to protect privacy.

River is River in real life, because River don’t give a fruitfly about nobody.

Barbara Burgess is a writer which is apparent by the text in this box and the box above. She is best known for being a multi-genre/multi-writing voice author who throws caution to the wind when describing her writing career - "Oh, I write children's books, holiday romance, and sci-fi. Why? What do you do? Just one thing?" In addition to being a writer of all the things, she is the founder of Pilgrim Fowl Press and a writing facilitator bringing permission to write to the masses via Skillshare and Udemy. The only social media she frequents is Instagram (@hellothisisbarbara). Her desert island movie is Stargate (the original with James Spader), and she has been taking daily mug shots of her morning coffee since before Instagram was even a thing.
