- Amber -- dressed in a ratty teeshirt and lounge-around shorts and wearing no makeup....obviously ready for bed.
- Husband -- also dressed for bed in teeshirt and shorts. Also no makeup.
- A bed in a bedroom that is in desperate need of renovation (in which the husband is taking on as his summer project...woo hoo! ahem. sorry. back to play.). The bed is positioned so that it is facing the television set in the room. Playing on the television is TV Guide' Channel's "World's Sexiest TV Women." The room is
littered with dirty clothes and a dirty cereal bowl is sitting by the bedspotless.
ACT III. SCENE I.
The curtain opens with Amber and Husband in bed. Husband has tight hold on remote, eyes glued to television spectacle. Amber is propped up with laptop, eyes glued on her computer screen. She barely notices the tv or Husband. A sundry of television's past and present leading ladies parade across the television screen.
HUSBAND: You know who the sexiest woman in the world is?
AMBER: (finishes up what she is typing and then turns to look at him. looks confused.) Huh?
HUSBAND: Do you know who the sexiest woman in the world is?
AMBER: (rolls eyes) Jennifer Love Hewitt? (side note....this is who the husband is crushing on. he apparently has a thing for people who can whisper to ghosts.)
HUSBAND: (long pause. looks as if he is mulling something over. begins to stutter.) Uh. Uh. Uh. Yes.
Amber punches Husband and returns to laptop.
The husband says I talked fancy to him and got him all kinds of confused.
Maybe I should have whispered.
