This one might read like an inside joke for a lot of people on the outside.

Oh well.

CHARACTER A

(Shouting)

Hey, what the fuck are you doing up there?

CHARACTER B

Bowling.

CHARACTER A

No, I mean... what are you doing up there? Why aren’t you down here?

CHARACTER B

Why am I...? Because this is where I was assigned.

CHARACTER A

You what?

CHARACTER B

I was assigned. We got nametags and stuff, you’ll get one eventually. I gotta go though, I’m up on my lane.

CHARACTER A

Well, wait. What... What’s the... How do we get assigned?

CHARACTER B

I’m not on that committee, but from what I can tell, everybody gets a number. When they call yours, you find our where you go.

CHARACTER A

It’s cool up there?

CHARACTER B

Dude, it’s Tuesday night and we’re out bowling. I bet it beats the hell outta whatever you’re doing tonight. But like I said, I gotta run.

CHARACTER A

Wait wait wait! Tell me more!

CHARACTER B

(he looks around)

Well...

(another long pause)

There are no gutter balls up here. And it’s not bumpers either! The ball just goes where you want it to.

CHARACTER A

(he thinks for a second)

Well then, everything’s working out. I’m a little pissed, everyone’s a little pissed, but as long as...

(he trails off)

CHARACTER B

You think I’m not pissed? I want to visit, but hey, this is where I’m assigned.

(he fingers his nametag, hanging off a lanyard like an office security badge)

Number 4H297Q. Lanes 9 and 10 of the Bowling Alley. We’re actually based on the same system as those old Geocities addresses.

CHARACTER A

Well, as long as you’re happy. Y’ever get bored of bowling?

CHARACTER B

Would you?

CHARACTER A

I suppose I wouldn’t.

CHARACTER B

Right. I do sometimes, but... Anyways, I gotta go. I’m holding up the lane.

I fuckin’ miss you, man.
