The curtain rises on a stage bare except for two desks facing each other with a television in the middle. Each seated at a desk are TOM, a bright-eyed optimist with a wicked tongue, and LORENZO, a wise, but cynical latin man, prone to outbursts because he is a latin man. They are each staring at computer screens while Project Runway plays silently on the television.]
TOM: I honestly don’t get what your problem is here. It’s not like you don’t know this show…
TOM: It’s par for the course! What are you talking about? I didn’t like Ping’s ass lampshade any more than you did, but look at this dress!
TOM: Tacky?! It’s HOOKER AT THE RODEO. This looks like a dress you could buy at a giftshop in a truckstop!
TOM: No, it just looks huge, not to mention easy access, what with the lacing and all.
TOM: All I’m saying is, I get where the judges were coming from on this. It’s exactly how they always judge. They see “point of view” when they look at Ping’s work and they see “truckstop dress” when they look at Pam’s.
TOM: LOL! I’m LOLing here! What show have YOU been watching? I’m not saying I like it, but they judge based on potential. They always have.
TOM: Not really, but let’s save that for the Ping post.
LORENZO: Okay, but let’s not make me sound like an angry fanboy with this post.
TOM: Are you kidding me? Everyone’s going to agree with you and think I’m smoking crack.
