Francis, the cat was lying on the floor, belly up, staring the ceiling. He was bored out of his mind.
The Pen comes along.
Pen: Hey useless ball of fur.
Francis stays put, still belly up, and looks right at the Pen.
Cat (a little too excited): Hey there Pen, how are you?
Francis turns to the side and gets straight.
Cat: Just fine? Nothing big happened?
Pen (highly suspicious): No…
Cat: you sure?
Cat (sighs in annoyance): crap!
Pen: what´s the matter with you?
Cat: Can´t you tell?
Pen: tell what?
Cat: I´m bored out of my mind!
Pen: okay, so what?
Cat: Tell me a story!
Pen: A story? About what?
Cat: I don´t care, anything.
Pen: Are you sure you´re okay? You´re acting kind of weird.
Cat: I don´t know what you´re talking about.
Francis gets up and starts to walk away. The Pen “follows” him.
Pen: Francis? What are you hiding?
Pen (anxious): well?
Cat: I´m bored.
Pen: You already said that!
Cat: well, it´s true.
Cat: all my friends are out of town and Amelia has gone away with Missy and Jason won´t take me anywhere.
Pen: Wow! You sound like an old married wife whose husband doesn´t pay enough attention to.
Cat: what are you talking about?
Pen: Francis, you´ve got nothing to do!
Cat (sarcastic): Did you just arrive at that conclusion now? What gave it away?
Pen: Your excitement when you saw me.
Cat: That wasn´t excitement, it was boredom!
Pen: Go out, see the birds, chase some… Oh well, forget about that.
Pen: You´re a useless cat, you befriend birds, you don´t chase them.
Cat: you say it like it’s a bad thing.
Pen: Your ancestors would be very disappointed.
Cat: yeah, well, they can go suck an onion for all I care.
Pen: don´t you have anything to do?
Cat: like what?
Pen: Well, Amelia may be out o town but you can always go out and meet another female cat.
Cat: You´re desperate to attend my funeral aren´t you?
Pen (grinning): yes!
Cat: You´re so mean, and here I thought we could be friends.
Pen: You are crazy like that.
Cat: You´re the one who´s crazy!
Pen: you´re talking to a pen!
Cat: So? You´re talking to a cat! Does that make you crazy?
Pen: you´re seriously asking me that question?
Pen: Ha! Ha! Ha!
Cat: what´s so funny?
Pen: You mean other than you?
Cat: Why do I even bother?
Pen: Because you´re a crazy cat!
Francis drops to the floor, gets belly up once again and starts singing.
Cat: I´m so bored! I´m so bored! I´m so bored!
Pen: You sound like a crazy drunk! Oh I forgot, my mistake…
Pen: You are a crazy drunk!
Cat: Have I told you…
Pen: You love me?
Cat: No! That I…
Pen: Adore me?
Cat: Shut up!
Pen: you shut up! You…
Nothing. Francis has fallen asleep leaving the Pen mocking air.
Pen: Stupid cat!
Cat (slurring): you shut up…
Pen: Drunken ball of fur!
Cat (sleeping): I´m so bored…
