A little something for Wrestlemania Sunday this year. Not really a point, but sometimes its nice just to open with a good laugh.
By John Cosper
Jeff – A guy in love
Dave – Jeff’s wise friend
April – A pretty blonde with blue eyes
Jeff enters, dressed very nicely. He's carrying a box of chocolates and a bouquet of flowers. He sits at a table on stage. Dave enters. He starts to pass, but then stops when he sees Jeff.
DAVE: Jeff? Jeff Miller?
JEFF: Oh hey, Dave.
DAVE: I almost didn't recognize you.
DAVE: I'm used to seeing you in a T-shirt and jeans. Are you going to a wedding or something?
JEFF: I don't know, maybe.
JEFF: I'm meeting someone.
DAVE: You are?
DAVE: You mean like a girl?
DAVE: I didn't know you had a girlfriend.
JEFF: I don't. At least, I don't right now, but maybe if things go well.
DAVE: Is she pretty?
JEFF: Oh yes! She's very pretty. She has blonde hair and blue eyes.
JEFF: She's so cool too. She likes football and basketball and baseball.
DAVE: Get out!
JEFF: She also likes Star Wars and Indiana Jones.
DAVE: Come on, really?
JEFF: Yes, really.
DAVE: She sounds like the perfect woman.
JEFF: I know! I can't wait to meet her.
DAVE: What's her name?
DAVE: April what?
JEFF: April Fools.
Dave looks at the audience, then at Jeff.
DAVE: April Fools?
DAVE: Are you joking with me? Is this a prank?
JEFF: Why do you think this is a prank?
DAVE: Come on, Jeff. April Fools? You think I'm going to fall for that?
JEFF: Fall for what? I'm not joking.
DAVE: Jeff, if you're not joking, someone else is.
JEFF: What do you mean?
DAVE: Come on, Jeff, April Fools? A blonde haired, blue eyed girl who loves Star Wars and football and basketball and baseball? No woman is that perfect!
JEFF: April is!
DAVE: April FOOLS?
JEFF: Yes, she... Oh my goodness... Oh my goodness, do you think--
DAVE: Yes! Someone's playing a trick on you!
JEFF: I can't beleive it. Oh, I feel like such a... such a...
DAVE: A fool?
DAVE: I'm so sorry, Jeff. I really hate to hurt you like this.
JEFF: No, no, it's not your fault. I'm the one who fell for it. April Fools. How could I be so foolish?
Jeff stands up, leaving the flowers and candy on the table.
DAVE: Hey, don't feel bad, man. Let me buy you some lunch or something.
JEFF: Look, I just had my heart broken. I think I'd like to be alone for a while.
Jeff walks away slowly. Dave picks up the candy. April enters.
APRIL: Hi there.
DAVE: Well, hello.
APRIL: You must be Jeff.
DAVE: Jeff who?
APRIL: Jeff Miller?
DAVE: No he was just... who are you?
APRIL: I'm April.
APRIL: April Fools.
DAVE: (does a double take) You're April... April Fools????
DAVE: (yells off) Jeff! Hey, Jeff, get back here!
Dave runs away. Jeff sneaks on the other side of the stage. April turns to him.
JEFF: Did he fall for it?
APRIL: Oh yeah!
They high five and exit.
