COOKIES AND PILLOWS
By Katie Repman
INT. A COFFEE SHOP. SOMEWHERE UPTOWN- NIGHT
Braxton and Susie are working and talking.
Do you know why they call them
(Braxton points to the
huge cookies in the
The name says Chocolate Chip
Pillows, why don’t they just call
them Chocolate Chip Cookies.
I think their using irony to create
a hyperbolic comparison between
pillows and cookies.
(Susie rings up a
devoid of emotion.)
The cookies are so big they look
like they could also be used as
pillows. So the name Chocolate Chip
Cookie is a complete and utter lie.
Oh yeah I guess.
I mean a lot of things in life are
not as they appear. For example
sugar free anything isn’t ever

just water, you feel so bloated
that your picking out baby names.
So yeah, haven’t really gotten a
lot of sleep since I started
Well maybe you should just try to
leave work at work, it really isn’t
a big deal.
Big deal, of course it’s a big
deal. The very foundation of what
this country is based on “TRUTH”,
is completely in jeopardy every
time we come here, put on our
hates, and pretend that a pillow is
a pillow, sugar free is
really sugar free and small,
medium and large are really
small, medium and large. Orson, I’m
gonna need to take my mandatory
You know, I wasn’t gonna mention
this earlier but I do have some
weed in my bag, if you want some.
It might relax you. You seem really

one lie at a time.
