Friends Or Benefits

[scene opens with two men sitting at a table facing each other]
DONALD: So, it's been hard since I lost my stepson ... or, misplaced him.
[the other man (wearing glasses, a bowtie, and holding a sign in front of him reading "Libraries Yes eplfriends dot org" stares at him blankly]
JON: I'm a ... I'm a librarian right now, but I-I'm actually just an assistant librarian. I, but I say "librarian" just because it's easier for people to know.
DONALD: There's room to grow ...
JON: Yeah, and I'm also a self-realized bisexual, so ... there's that, and then I've also realized that I'm--
DONALD: Wuh, what--
JON: Illiterate, I couldn't read until I was--
DONALD: Um ...
JON: I'm like--
DONALD: The thing is, I'm looking for a friend that can, like ... read.
JON: Oh, you're just looking for a friend?
[he pauses, then holds up his sign]
JON: I can read! So this is, uh, this is where I work. And it says ...
[he struggles to read the first word]
JON: "Li--"
DONALD: No, I can read.
JON: "Li ... brar"--
DONALD: It's "Libraries."
JON: "Brah!" "Li-brah" ... "Rise."
DONALD: Just "Libraries" ...
[Jon stops and smiles]
DONALD: Yeah, so books! Man, what have I read lately? A lot of stuff online. Uh, the Huffington Post--
JON: Yeah, okay.
DONALD: It's kind of like a book.
JON: Some people don't know, yeah, what they read. It's a lotta ... That's questions. That's a lotta questions. Uh, I'm illiterate, so I'm working my way up, and now I'm on a lot of Richard Scarry books.
DONALD: Well, I'd love to read those with you someday.
JON: Oh ...
DONALD: Not anytime soon, though.
JON: Thank you.
DONALD: Looking for a more stable friend ... who can read.
