2 – A BAR
HE and SHE look at each other. Silence. HE is about to talk to her.
SHE: Excuse me… I was supposed to meet someone precisely at this bar and at this table. I don’t think you are…
After hearing her talk, HE gets serious.
HE: Me? Impossible. I was supposed to meet someone that… Well… Someone that isn’t you.
SHE looks at his legs.
HE: By the way, I’m meeting someone here at this table too.
SHE: Don’t worry. I’ll just change tables. No! No! I can’t see someone coming in in a wheel chair.
HE: You’re waiting for a… disabled person? A disabled person that you met on Facebook, maybe?
SHE: Yes, they use Facebook too…
HE: As well as mute people that talk nonstop. Patricia!
SHE realizes that HE also lied to her. SHE speaks to him clearly annoyed.
SHE: Robert?! You are Robert?! I’m so stupid! I should have known!
HE: Well actually… My name isn’t Robert, either… I made it up for … It doesn’t matter… What about you? What made you start lying?
HE: You like to pretend to be what you’re not, don’t you?
SHE: Let’s just say, yes…
HE: Who are you, really?
SHE: Do you want something to drink? A cocktail?
HE: I don’t drink cocktails.
SHE: Well, today you do. You think of a drink and I’ll think of another. We’ll mix them together and we’ll drink it.
HE: And what if they don’t mix well together?
SHE: You wouldn’t believe how many things go well together. This way we won’t discover each other’s real tastes right away.
HE: You baffle me.
SHE: Come on, a drink…
HE: Tonic water.
SHE: Oh, how daring… Rum.
HE: Tonic water with rum…? That will turn my stomach inside out.
SHE: You should have suggested something more original.
HE: I’m not used to drinking in the morning.? I didn’t have lunch. I was busy at the computer.
SHE: Get something to eat if you want.
HE: If you have a cocktail, I will too.
SHE: Do you always make your decisions based on what other people do?
HE: Sometimes I don’t decide at all.
SHE: I didn’t imagine you that way.
HE: Well, that’s the way I am. In person I don’t know how to pretend. What’s your real name?
SHE: Don’t just blame me for not telling the truth.
HE: I’m not blaming you for anything!
SHE: Just admit it, you are like me; you don’t play a clean game. I don’t trust people like me, you know…
HE: Great. I imagine you might have some nice things about you too.
SHE: Who knows…
HE: Okay, enough of this game. My name is…
SHE: Wait! How am I going to know that if you tell me another name, it will be your real name? No, no… It’s better to just assume that everything is made up. This way, there’s no deceiving one another. I bet you don’t even like horses.
