“THE LITTLE BOY WHO LIKES BEER”
by D. M. Larson
(from "Operation Redneck")
JJ: What is this all about anyway? Both of you are acting weird.
BETH: It's nothing, JJ. Drink your beer.
JJ: Wait a minute. I can put two and two together...
BETH: What'd you get? Three?
JJ: First, there's that perfect couple contest, then Tina wants to "talk", and then grilling Julie's Pa about marriage. I'm starting to see the writing on the stall!
TINA: JJ, don't get upset. It's not like that.
JJ: This is your way of dropping hints about us, ain't it Tina?
TINA: (Looks to BETH for help) Well!
JJ: Don't worry, sugar plum. I understand. Now I ain't in a position to be, buying rings just yet, but I know that when that time comes, there's a perfectly cut cubic zirconium in your future, baby.
TINA: Oh, JJ. Really?
BETH: Wow, JJ. You found us out. Yes, Tina was worried you weren't as insanely in love with her as she is with you.
JJ: (Smiles at TINA) Insane huh?
TINA: Totally and completely.
BETH: You've both got to be.
JJ: Once I'm rich and famous, I'm gonna make you Mrs. JJ Bean.
BETH: Just in time for retirement huh? (JJ and TINA are too wrapped up in each other to hear her).
TINA: You know. You could probably make enough money if you'd go work at your Uncle's Come and Go mini-market.
JJ: He won't let me work there unless I get my GED.
TINA: But he said he'd make you a night manager.
JJ: To be a night manager, he'll make me go take some classes at the community college. It's just too hard.
JULIE: I'm back. (Enters with groceries)
JJ: Hey! Food.
JULIE: It's not for you.
JJ: Who's it for?
JULIE: If you must know, it's for my boyfriend.
JJ: Ooooh. Julie's got a boyfriend. Julie's got a boyfriend.
JULIE: (To TINA) How old is he?
TINA: He's still a little boy inside.
JJ: Yea, a little boy who likes beer. Can I have another one? (Looks in grocery bag)
JULIE: No, go home.
JJ: Aw, man.
JULIE: Go mooch off your mom and dad for awhile.
JJ: But they won't give me beer. My ma hogs it all.
BETH: I guess it runs in the family. (JJ exits)
