Jude Moonlight ~
The baker wore a mustache and he smiled to me and he said, “Where you been, dear boy? What you been up to?” I said, “I been here, dear man. I been here, I got stuck on a girl and I can’t get her off of my mind.” And he said that’ll happen from time to time.
Baker: What’s her name?
Jude: I got a thing about saying her real name.
Jude: Don’t know…let’s call her Monique.
Baker: C’mon, after all the talks we’ve had, you can’t trust me enough to give me the girl’s name?
Jude: It’s not about trust.
Baker: Alright then, I understand. Really I do.
Jude: Her name is Cassandra.
Baker: Was that so hard? What do you like about her?
Jude: Everything. But enough about that, I’m done with it. She loves another man.
Baker: Oh tough break, kid.
Jude: Yea, but anyways it’s nice to be back here in the ol’ haunt. How’s business?
Baker: It’s nice to have you back. Nice to see you, you ol’ rascal. Business? Business is good, I can’t complain. The world didn’t end. I’m happy.
Jude: Me too.
Baker: So what’s your next move?
Jude: To be loved, and to give love.
Baker: You stole my idea!
Jude: It’s not your idea!
Baker: Ha! I guess that’s true.
Jude: Anyways, that’s not really my next move.
Baker: It’s your last?
Jude: I thought about joining the circus.
Jude: You know those guys who get put in a cannon?
Jude: And then they get shot out?
Baker: You came in here just to tell me that? Kind of a dry hump.
Jude: I know, but I just wanted to stop in and say hello. I made you a promise after all.
Baker: We did have a deal.
They shake hands.
Jude: It’s always a pleasure. (Begins to exit) You really are one of my dearest friends.
Baker: Likewise, dear Jude. Stay safe out there.
Jude: …and stay true.
Baker: You got it.
