another Awkward encounter

I walk backstage to start Act II. Awkward Dude is sitting in a chair. It's dark, so I know that someone's sitting there, but I can't tell who it is or what they are doing.

"Hey Rover."

Hello, Awkward Dude.

(pause)

"I was just making shadow puppets with my hands. You know, birds, stuff like that."

Um, great. I was just getting ready for the rest of the show.

"Well, that's what I was just doing. Making shadow puppets."

Great. I couldn't really see what you were doing there.


Aren't you going to miss him when I leave this place?
