Moments with Joey - License to Drive

Pin It

SCENE 1, INTERIOR. AFTERNOON, CLASSROOM. The class has left for the day; the teacher is packing up his items to go. As he slides his computer into the case, a fifth grade boy ‘drives’ around the classroom on the teacher’s wheeled chair. He is making vrooming noises as he does so.

JOEY: Are you driving home tonight, Mr. Z?

TEACHER: Yep.

JOEY: You know, if you wanted, I could drive you…

TEACHER: Wouldn’t you need a license to drive, Joey?

[The boy grins].

JOEY: Oh, I’ve got a license, Mr. Z.

TEACHER: Really?

JOEY: Yep, I got it when I was ten.

TEACHER: A license for what?

JOEY: Driving you crazy.

[Pause].

TEACHER: Yeah, isn’t that the truth…

[Fade to black].

Hehehe I read it as a wheel chair not a wheeled chair and though I missed something along the way.....
Ah Joey, can't wait to see who will be the new one next school year!

One thing you can be sure of about Joey...He ain't no dumby.
He has a purpose...even if it IS to drive you crazy
even though I know you love him
