The Biological Clock

If there was a way to be 100% sure you have met your soul mate, would you take it?

That is exactly what science is proposing to do. By 2020, it is estimated that 1/2 the population will have installed their Biological Clock. The Biological Clock is a scientific advancement that measures a person’s path to destiny and gives you the exact time it will take to meet your soul mate. Once the Biological Clock is installed all you have to do is wait for the timer to go off and sometime in the next 24 hours you will meet your soul mate. As soon as you lock eyes with the person you are meant to spend eternity with, the Biological Clock of both people will beep leaving you with the person you’ve been waiting your entire life to meet. It is that simple!

The Biological Clock is the story of one world where the guesswork is taken out of love and replaced with science. Who wouldn’t want to live in a world of absolute certainty? If you knew that in 255 days, 13 hours, 06 minutes, 51 seconds and 415 milliseconds you would meet your soul mate- how would you spend that time waiting?

I Hate You, Hugh Grant

I’ve always been a level headed woman. Always let my head lead and hoped that my heart would follow. This way of thinking protected me from the vast mistakes of my peers. That is until one of my friends suggested a Hugh Grant marathon. How was I supposed to go on living headstrong when I knew there were characters Hugh Grant portrayed on screen out there in the real world?

I Hate You, Hugh Grant is the captivating story of one girl in search of her soul mate on the most commercially romantic day of the year: Valentine’s Day. Will Anna find love before Cupid’s arrows run out? Or will she be forced to come to grips with the fact no one will be knocking on her door with flowers professing their love for her in the rain as Ben Lee’s Begin plays in the background because her life is not, unfortunately, a Hugh Grant movie?

Happy Valentine’s Day, y’all. Hope it is spent with a loved one. Or at least the fantasy of one.

Sweet Disposition: A Play in One Act

Curtain rises as Sweet Disposition by The Temper Trap begins to play. You see a woman and man fighting in the distance. Woman storms out of house. It begins to rain.

Cut to man in house angry and then notices a picture of happier times between woman and man on the mantel. You see recognition of said happier time in face followed by regret that he let woman walk out. Panic ensues and you know he must chase after her or risk losing her forever.

Next scene man is running in the rain after the woman who parked blocks away because parking on man’s street is nearly impossible. Woman is crying. Man finally catches up to woman, kisses her deeply. They get married and have children and live relatively happily ever after.

Song ends.

Fade to black.

Sweet Disposition: A Play in One Act is the play I just wrote about the song  Sweet Disposition, it has no words much like the critically acclaimed movie The Artist. Naturally I expect this will win numerous Tony Awards. You’re welcome, America.

Mr. Right?

Kathy never met a Mr. Wrong she didn’t Mr. Like. It seems every romantic choice she ever made was the wrong one, I guess that’s always the case until you find The One. She fell for guys too old, guys too young, guys who liked guys- there wasn’t a combo she didn’t fail at. Then it happened, a guy who was just right. He was tall, funny, smart, handsome and totally called her out on her bullshit. Most of all: he needed her. So the real question becomes: does Kathy like Mr. Right? because she is good for him and she loves being needed or because he is good for her? Until that can be honestly answered they were at a standstill.

In a role that was made for Katherine Heigl comes the story of one woman who learns the hard way what people have known for centuries: love is what happens in the in-between. But don’t worry, while she learns a lesson she also gets herself into hilariously compromising positions.

Soul Mates

I’m fascinated by this concept of soul mates. I mean, it really takes a lot of faith to believe that there is one person that your soul is meant to be with, forever. Here’s how I think soul mates should work: they can read your mind. Think about it… what if you were walking around, minding your own business and thinking your private thoughts and then you meet someone and there are no words. Literally. ‘Cause the other person can hear all your thoughts and aren’t scared by them and don’t want to blog all the crazy, private, weird things you think but rather feel these things too. And that is how you know, all the sudden there is one person whom you can communicate with without all those pesky words. That is how I would believe in the idea of a soul mate, if someone existed solely for you and you alone and you knew this without a doubt because you shared an unspoken agreement. I feel like that is love: being able to hear all the embarrassing things someone thinks and not go running for the door.

All I want is for someone to be in my head and not in a Being John Malkovich way but to be able to share the crazy that is me and have someone else not go sprinting in the opposite direction. Where art thou, future husband who can magically read my thoughts and me his? I’m right here, waiting.

The Boy Next Door

Ted was Jenny’s boy next door. They did everything together from learning how to ride their bikes to their first kiss. In fact, from an early age everyone had always said that the two were going to end up together, married with babies. Everywhere they went people would refer to them as Tenny. Do you know how annoying it is to have your life predetermined by everyone on your block? Super.

So as a form of protest Ted and Jenny decided to call it quits, forging their own paths. But what happens when you meet your soul mate at five and decide not to let fate control your life? Bad things.

The Boy Next Door is the story of how when two people are meant to be no matter how much they fight it, they’ll find their way back together. Again and again and again. That’s just what happens when you buy a car together to be more “economically friendly”.
