Time Out

A is standing on stage. B approaches.


B: Sorry, do you have the time?

A: Yes, I do.

B: What is it?

A: Oh, it's a measuring system based on the rotation of the Earth on its axis

B: No, what is the time now

A: Same thing it was just then.

B: At this moment – this second – what is the time?

A: Are you expecting it to change?

B: Time always changes

A: Are you Bob Dylan?

B: No! Please! Just – Do you have a watch?

A: Of course

B: What does it say?

A: It can't talk.

B: (Shouting) Read its face!

A: Stop that!  You're upsetting it!

B: How can you possibly know that?

A: It's covering its face with it hands!

Lights down
