(scene opens in dark mini van)
Me: So what time do I have to pick you up?
Beta: The game should be over by 8. Did you know some kids just hang out after school until the game starts? That’s over three hours of hanging out! That’s gotta be so boring!
Me: Not really. Not if you have all your friends there too. My old high school had activity busses running until 6:30 every night, so I just hung out with my friends every day until last call.
Beta: I suppose. Hey remember T, our old neighbor? Who was a percussionist? They used to hang out in the band room every day.
Beta: They used to get into so much trouble.
Me: Also legit.
Beta: They used to have a microwave in there. Not since they put a shoe in it.
(car pulls up to curb)
Me: Yeah, Band Kids are terrible. (Beta gets out of the car) Theater kids are the worst. (Beta pauses, looks back over his shoulder) I was both.
Beta: That explain so much.
Me: Get out. I’ll see you in two hours.
