Lazy is an Understatement
Int. Living room - day
NICOLE, lays asleep on the couch in an awkward stance. Friend Victoria enters and is shocked to see her friend asleep, so late in the day.
VICTORIA tries to wake her friend up.
(with a projected voice)
HEY! HEY! NICOLE WAKE UP! COME ON
NICOLE groans now only half asleep.
It's 4 o'clock!
VICTORIA shakes her more, then Nicole slowly gets up from her slumber.
I'm up. I'm up.
I'm starting to get really worried about you. You've been really lazy lately.
I'm on a sleep diet.
you don't need to be dieting, you need to be running! Remember you were the track and field star!Medals every time you ran.
yeah, but it was so...hard! Hurdle after hurdle! It was disgusting
NICOLE, picks up her hamburger sitting on the table, and grabs for it coming near her mouth. Then VICTORIA swipes it out of her hands.
No more junk! Look at you! you're still thin, but your gaining more and more weight! Meet me at the track tomorrow, Okay!
Then Victoria bites the hamburger, and exits.
Ext. Running track - day
VICTORIA and NICOLE are seen near the actual track, wearing athletic wear. Nicole is drinking an unhealthy soda, and Victoria is looking at her clipboard. There are two runners who are standing on the track.
(Brings eyes off of clipboard and spots NICOLE and her drink)
Hey! put that down!
I'm not done with it!
Victoria snatches it from her.
Go join the runners on the track we're going to practice without hurdles.
Victoria drinks the rest of her soda. Nicole walks over onto the track. Her and the two other runners go into their starting positions.
Okay we are about to start. On your mark...get set...Go!
IMMEDIATELY when VICTORIA says go, the two runners speed off, and NICOLE from the starting point, walks towards NICOLE who is behind her, and says...
I can't do this.
She goes to sit on the bench next to VICTORIA
What was that!?
(Now she understands)
Ohhh! That! Well I knew I couldn't do it... so.
Look. I need you to get in shape!
You told me I was thin!
Yeah, but you can't even run an inch!
Fine! then help me train.
Alright then. Exercise 101.
