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.
Sorry sir, but you’re twenty cents short.
Oh, I’m sorry, I could’ve sworn I counted out two twenty-five.
EISENHOWER hands BIRD some change.
Thank you so much, sir.
BIRD feeds the change into the pay box.
I’ve always got change rattling around in my pockets. Comes in handy in times like this.
I really appreciate it.
BIRD sees a seat open up in the back of the bus.
Thanks again, I really appreciate it.
Have a good one!
EISENHOWER pulls out a newspaper and starts reading as BIRD moves to the back of the bus.
