Happy Grooming

AND THE WINNERS ARE:
Judi Dench (50%)
Donald Sutherland (60%)
Thank you for voting!

EXT. ZOO - DAY

A senior MARRIED COUPLE is strolling past the Gorilla Exhibit. Two gorillas, sitting just behind the fence, are grooming each other.

GLENDA
Look, dear. I can almost touch them.
(smiling)
Aren't they sweet?

HENRY
Yes, but not as sweet as you, dear.

Henry begins to groom Glenda's hair and caresses her neck.

GLENDA
(shocked)
What are you doing?!

A ZOO KEEPER appears with the gorillas' lunch of cottage cheese, raspberries, and banana tree leaves.

GLENDA
That looks interesting.

HENRY
Mmm, but not as delicious as the cottage cheese, raspberries, and bananas you fed me this morning.

Henry returns to Glenda, grooming her, showering her with affections.

GLENDA
(pondering)
It really does work.

I can just see this one happening! Reminds me of-my husband I were dating and he told me "we're not monkeys so quit grooming me!" That was many years ago-I bet he wishes I would pay him that much attention now.

This and its accompanying voting and music are the most original thing I've come across on the Internet in a while. Congratulations, and go, Donald Sutherland!

Hi Petra!
Another fabulous script! When you win your Oscar/Pulitzer/Grammy/whatever..... I expect to be invited to the ceremony, 'kay?
And of course you can use my post. What a lovely honor and thanks for asking. You totally made my day!

I am truly touched and grateful that you visit.

I have changed one of my votes and have moved into the Judi Dench camp, though I could shift to Rita Moreno.
