Cheeky FireVaney

The “backroom” of the Chicago Coffee Cadre (store #7). FireVaney washes dishes. Clayton enters and hangs up his jacket. 

FireVaney 
You two have a good time? 

Clayton 
We get along great. 

FireVaney 
I mean, 
[slowly]
 did you two have a good time? 

[Brief pause.

Clayton 
Is that any of your business? 

FireVaney 
‘Course not. 
[Brief pause.] 
She a screamer? 

Clayton 
What?

 FireVaney
 Does she scream? 

Clayton 
No. 
She’s quiet. 

FireVaney 
Maybe you don’t satisfy her. 

Clayton 
No. She once said she can see colors. 

FireVaney 
She color blind?

 Clayton 
No. 

FireVaney 
What colors? 

Clayton 
She didn’t say. 

FireVaney 
She didn’t say? 
You didn’t ask? 

Clayton
 She said she saw colors. 
So I said I saw spots. 

FireVaney
Cute.
Next time ask what colors. 
It’s important. 

Clayton 
Important? How? 

FireVaney 
You want her to see bright colors. Hot pink, not beige. Road flare red, not slate gray. If she’s seeing beige or slate gray, you’re doing something wrong.
