DUST BOWL, Part 3

SCENE:
Tom is in the nurse’s office, a blood pressure cuff around his arm. The nurse is looking at a clipboard with concern.

NURSE: Your physical looks good, Mister Rough… Except for one thing.

TOM: What?

NURSE: I don’t know to tell you this, but… Your blood. It’s carbonated.

TOM: What?

NURSE: It happens sometimes with people who drink too much soda and coffee. The CO2 levels in your plasma are so extreme that it clumps around the caffeine molecules, causing intravenous carbonation.

TOM: I see.

TOM: And how much did Karla pay you to tell me that?

NURSE: Ten dollars.

KARLA (offscreen): HEY!
