What's in a Name?

By williamkterry

LYNN


Shannon? Is there a Shannon here?


 


SHANNON


I’m Shannon.


 


LYNN


Are you sure?


 


SHANNON


I think I’d know my own name. Wait? Are you Lynn?


 


LYNN


I’m trying to decide if I should lie.


 


SHANNON


You are Lynn! But, you’re a dude?


 


LYNN


Astute observation, and so are you.


 


SHANNON


What the hell? Online you never said you were a guy.


 


LYNN


Neither did you?


 


SHANNON


But your name? And you said... You said your favorite movie was “The Little Mermaid.”


 


LYNN


It’s an amazing story, about finding your place in... I don’t have to explain myself to someone who’s favorite movie is “The Notebook.”


 


SHANNON


Don’t you dare bad mouth Nicholas Sparks, he’s the voice of the everyman.


 


LYNN


Whatever man. I say we just pretend this never happened and un-friend each other.


 


SHANNON


Yeah I agree...


 


LYNN


What’s that noise.?


 


SHANNON


Oh. It’s the buzzer they gave me. I guess our table is ready. I’ll just give it back...


 


LYNN


Hold on a second!


 


SHANNON


What?


 


LYNN


Is what you said online about being a foodie true?


 


SHANNON


Of course. Why else would I get us reservations at White Rose? This place is the BOMB.


 


LYNN


That’s what I’ve heard, I’ve never eaten here. What did it take you two weeks to get the reservations?


 


SHANNON


Four. I was hoping I’d get a date by the time the reservation came up. My sister was pissed when we met online, she already had her entree picked out.


 


LYNN


Well it seems a crime to waste such a sought after reservation.


 


SHANNON


Are you saying you want to continue our date?


 


LYNN


Sure


 


SHANNON


Fine. As long as you promise to finish that story about the Lawn Gnomes in Finland.


 


LYNN


Deal! If you promise to keep your hands off my ass.


 


SHANNON


I make no promises. I told you online I’m an ass-man.


 


LYNN


HA! Fair enough. Shall we dine.


 


SHANNON


After you!
