ACT 11 SCENE 7
MONEY BURNING A HOLE IN MY POCKET
Tati is reading an advertising booklet.
TATI: (calling out) Is $22 worth much in today’s economy?
TONY: (from another room) I have no idea. Depends on which economy!
TATI: (to herself) We should drink away our first income.
TONY: I heard that! And, no, we shouldn’t!
Tony enters the room, a disapproving look on his face. Tati holds up the booklet for him to see.
TATI: Look. Hennessy VS 0.5l, Gift Pack for $22!
TONY: NO! What the hell is wrong with you? Are you some kinda lush?
Tati pouts, then her face lights up as something else comes to mind.
TATI : We should spend it on something nice like… HATS! We can buy hats for doves in the park.
Tony does a massive facepalm.
TATI: (a little less convincingly) For the sake of their heads… So the sun doesn’t cook them?
TONY: Jesus. What is the difference between drinking away this money and buying headwear for birds?
Tati pouts again.
TONY: (ruefully) Well, I guess the birds would benefit more than your liver…
TATI: Fine. What do you reckon we should do with the first income from our Patreon page?
Hey, Dear Readers, would you like to read more? Would you like to know how wisely Tati and Tony disposed of their $22? Then why not pop on over here? We’d love for you to see the hard work we’ve done on our new Patreon page. There’s no entrance fee, we promise!
It’s often said that beginning is the hardest part. We’d thought about this idea for so long that we had begun to wonder if it would work at all. Still, you never know what can be achieved until you try, so we’ve decided to make an announcement…
Yes, we’re still a bit shy about asking for money outright, hence the intro full of funny drawings and inconsequential waffle. And while it’s fair to say that we put a lot of effort into all we do, when it comes to self-promotion we feel like dolts.
You see, we haven’t devised a motto where we blubber and scream and guilt you into supporting us, nor have we made any tempting promises about the outcome if you do. No, we just can’t seem to get that part right.
Anyway, we won’t repeat what we wrote for our Patreon intro here. Why not pop on over and read it at your leisure instead? We promise, Dear Reader, that it’ll be worth your while. Well… it should be fun at least.
Come, fly with us!
Erm… hullo there. (This is rather awkward…)
