Short excerpt from "Night of a Thousand Exes"

Scene opens on a beer garden in Brooklyn. Man has just arrived from a roller derby bout where he watched an ex-lover from last year cuddling with an ex-friend in the stands, while also seeing his most recent Ex of a week ago's current lover, who is a member of said derby league. This recent Ex is also at the beer garden for the birthday party of a mutual friend. Some brief small talk occurs amongst the group before Man and Ex finally face one another. She stands and speaks...

Ex of one week ago:
How are you doing?

Man shrugs sadly. She gives him a comforting hug and cheek kiss.

Ex of one week ago: (turning immediately to another friend) So this guy was just hitting on me in the line to the bathroom...
Man exits.

And scene.

Aww ... that hurts me and I'm not even involved ... although you shouldn't have to change your lifestyle or interests just to avoid people (i'm a non-confrontational type) I'd avoid that place like the plague ... or show up with a much hotter date then your ex's are ... or just kick um in the junk and run ... not very manly but get's your point across :D
