My Little Pony
(A guy gets onto the bus and approaches an empty seat beside a pretty girl.)
GUY: Is it alright if I sit here?
GIRL: Yeah, sure.
GUY: (Sits down.) Thanks. Don't you just hate taking the bus?
GIRL: Yeah, it's the worst.
(An old man sits down nearby. The guy ignores him and continues talking.)
GUY: So, do you take the bus often?
GIRL: Just to school and back. Do you?
OLD MAN: Every now and then.
GUY: Uhhh, no sir… I think she was talking to me.
OLD MAN: Oh... I'm sorry…
(The old man looks closely at the guy.)
OLD MAN: I think I know you from somewhere?
GUY: (Embarrassed.) I don't think so.
OLD MAN: Yeah, I remember you. You used to live in the house behind me.
GUY: Did I?
OLD MAN: Yeah, you used to run around the yard, playing…. Oh, what did ya used to call it?
GUY: Ninja Turles…? Transformers…? Guns…?
OLD MAN: No, no. It was something with a horse… like, my tiny horsie?
GUY: I don't know, man.
OLD MAN: My... little horsey?
GIRL: Do you mean My Little Pony?!
OLD MAN: That's the one!
GUY: (Embarrassed.) No, I don't think so.
OLD MAN: Yeah, this young fella' over here used to run around in his underwear playing My Little Pony… all day long, from sunrise to sunset. Absolutely loved it.
GUY: You don't know what you're talking about.
OLD MAN: Yeah, you used to gallop around your backyard yelling "I'm a pony mommy! Look, I'm a pony!"
GIRL: (Laughs.) That's so cute.
GUY: Really, you think so? Because I played it a lot.
GIRL: Yeah, my little brother used to do the exact same thing… he's Autistic. Here's my stop. Nice talking to you both.
OLD MAN: Goodbye dear.
(The girl leaves.)
GUY:(Annoyed.) Why did you have to say all that?
OLD MAN: Say what?
GUY: Just, nevermind...
(A few seconds of silence.)
OLD MAN: So you still play My Little Pony?
GUY: (Sighs.) Yeah.
