A radio play by Martin Baena
Characters: A, B
Setting: A bar
A: What does that mean, “She didn’t see it coming”?
B: She’s a fortune teller
B: …because she tells fortunes for a living.
A: She was right about your promotion.
B: You call that a fortune?
A: Maybe the future can’t be helped.
B: Another beer?
B: …’nother beer, please.
A: Like… the future’s a tornado. Ever try n’ stop a tornado?
B: Yeah. But she’s a huckster.
A: Prove it.
B: I don’t have to.
A: You have faith she’s a huckster.
B: I have faith she’s a lyin’ cheat.
A: If you’re wrong? And she can see the future?
B: Did’n you just say it can’t be helped?
A: I did.
B: Blessed are the ignorant.
A: I’ll drink to that.
