How to Take a Compliment

Setting: Client lunch

[Sarah enters restaurant. Client, Betsy, is already there.]

Betsy: “You always look so glamorous.”

Sarah's brain to Sarah's mouth: [Say thank you.]

Mouth to brain: [No, that doesn’t seem quite right.]

Brain to mouth: [Ohhhkay. Try saying What a nice thing to say.]

Mouth: [Wrong.]

Brain: [You’re on your own, moron.]

Sarah: “There’s a safety pin holding my pants up.”

End scene.
