You Can Sleep While I Drive[
 Lights up on ANA and JIM wearing full 1959 period costume: he in white jacket with bow-tie and  Buddy Holly glasses, she in poodle skirt with full crynolins, legs crossed at the ankles. They sit side-by- side, driving in a white 1959 Caddillac with full fins and chrome.
]JIMFinally, on your tour of 1959 Los Angeles, I point out to you the The KTLA Tower. The first broadcaster on the West Coast, it was also the first to play the Rodney King beating video, and theentire OJ Simpson trial, gavel to gavel.Thus concludes my answer to your question: Why a degree in American Studies with an Emphasis onSunset Boulevard before 1960. You only have to look here for a snapshot of our history, and, I posit, aglimpse of our future.ANAYou know, most graduate students just get all pissy and smarter-than-you when you ask them Whyanything.The costumes, my friend, are a nice touch.JIMFriend? My dear Ana, this has been a
date
as far as I'm concerned. Why would you call me your friendwhile we're on a date?ANATouché.That was kind of rude, I apologize. Tonight, you're my...dater.JIMDater?ANAA person you are dating, but not boyfriend/girlfriend with.JIMYet.Huh.I do want to be clear that this isn't a 1959 date. I want to do more than hold your hand.If that's alright with you.Scott Turner Schofield Brave New Works 20091 of 12

 ANA begins to answer, then lights flash in JIM's eyes. They have just entered the 101 Freeway, going  North.
]Dammit, Ana could I get you to take the wheel here? These glasses aren't my prescription, and I getkind of night-blind.ANAYou'd let me drive your precious car? Now
this
is intimacy.[
They pull over and exchange seats. As ANA slides over JIM's lap, he says:
]JIMI can give you that and more.ANAOh really.JIMReally.[
She stays on his lap.
]ANALike what?[
 JIM whispers into her ear. She smiles, as if at a knock-knock joke. Then cringes. Then rolls her eyes,and finally slips off JIM's lap into the driver's seat. She unceremoniously pulls the gearshift and rollsinto traffic as she talks. Like it was a Honda, not a 1959 Caddy.
]JIMWhat? Did I offend you?ANAOffend me?I thought you were going to say something to turn me on.JIMThat didn't turn you on?Scott Turner Schofield Brave New Works 20092 of 12
 
ANAJim, honey, I really thought I had explained all of this to you.I'm post-porn.Based on everything you just said to me, there is nothing you
could 
say to me that I didn't download before I was 13 years old.JIMDon't be --ANAJust because you don't believe it doesn't make it not true.JIMWell, well I want to know what, what could be-could be hotter than what I just...ANAI mean, it's...oldschool hot, I'll give you that. Sure, maybe I kept it in my whack stack on my iPhone for a few weeks, but after even a few viewings you just start to feel embarrassed about how 15 seconds of scroteslapping made you cream your panties, so you keep it for when you feel nostalgic, but by thenyou're not turned on anymore, just piteous, and you have to find something hotter or risk losing all your self-esteem.JIMHotter? Hotter like what?ANAJesus, Jim, like anything! Like Eastern European teens banging on a bowflex because it's the coolest piece of technology they have in those burnt-orange bad-wallpapered living rooms they fuck in.Because what really turns you on is the pure capitalism of it all – you want to cum because you're somuch richer than those poor skinny Ukranians. Or like 15 guys on 1 girl in a gym - maybe because youcan tell how much she's actually enjoying it, or maybe because you just like soccer. Or two young guysdouble-penetrating someone who could be your grandfather--JIMOh Jesus, please stop!ANAOh, you're homophobic now?Scott Turner Schofield Brave New Works 20093 of 12
