Essay Dialogues (#3): Two High School Seniors Talking About Their Admission Essays

Bart and Ian, 17 years old, stalwart young men, sit on a bench in the park. They are dressed in athletic gear. A basketball sits on the ground in front of the bench.

Bart exhales.

Ian looks up in to a tree.

Bart’s right leg bounces up and down aggressively.

Ian rises, stretches out his neck, sits back down.

BART: Uhhh…

IAN: Whew….

BART: We done?

IAN: Yeah, man, I can’t talk about these essays anymore.

He picks up the basketball and they exit.
