Larry Bird and Dwight D. Eisenhower

LARRY BIRD and DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER are waiting under a bus shelter.  They are silent.  A 145 bus pulls up to the bus stop.  LARRY BIRD motions for DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER to board first. EISENHOWER nods a “Thank you.”  EISENHOWER feeds his fare card into the pay box, and sits in the first seat behind the BUS DRIVER.  BIRD feeds a handful of coins into the pay box.  It is not enough.

 

BUS DRIVER

Sorry sir, but you’re twenty cents short.

 

BIRD

Oh, I’m sorry, I could’ve sworn I counted out two twenty-five.

 

EISENHOWER hands BIRD some change.

 

BIRD

Thank you so much, sir. 

 

BIRD feeds the change into the pay box.

 

EISENHOWER

I’ve always got change rattling around in my pockets.  Comes in handy in times like this.

 

BIRD

I really appreciate it.

 

BIRD sees a seat open up in the back of the bus.

 

BIRD cont.

Thanks again, I really appreciate it.

 

EISENHOWER

Have a good one!

 

EISENHOWER pulls out a newspaper and starts reading as BIRD moves to the back of the bus.
