WHAT ONCE WE FELT

ASTRID
Macy
You haven’t even touched—
Look at this food:
This is beautiful food!
You never get to eat at Panet
This food will change your life //
Enjoy enjoy my dear
MACY
Change your life

ASTRID
(Pulling a kumquat out and eating it with her fingers)
You really should try one
They’re stuffed full of liquor
Like sucking a shot from a wet sock!
MACY
What did you offer Claire to entice her?
ASTRID
I shouldn’t have
It was ahem
A very unconventional contingency //
I shouldn’t have even tried
MACY
What did you offer her?
(Pause)
