(FLORIST stands behind a checkout counter. FEMALE CUSTOMER approaches them.)
Found everything you needed?
Actually I just was wondering, this plant looks very dehydrated but it’s incredibly green still. That can’t be right.
Yes, that plant is dead.
Yup, in fact they all are. When they die, I just paint ‘em green! See.
(FLORIST pulls out a dead plant and a can of green spray paint from under desk, then coats the plant with it.)
(MALE CUSTOMER walks up to FLORIST holding a plant.)
I’d like to buy this please.
(FLORIST charges MALE CUSTOMER, MALE CUSTOMER leaves.)
You can’t just scam people like that.
Sure I can.
(OLD LADY walks up to florist holding a plant.)
Your plants are so beautiful! I can’t find more like them anywhere!
Thank you, we pride ourselves in it.
(FLORIST charges OLD LADY, OLD LADY leaves.)
I want to speak to your boss!
(FLORIST disappears behind desk. Spraying sounds are heard. FLORIST reappears holding a beige coloured skeleton.)
That can’t be your boss, it’s just a painted model.
Oh it’s my boss, he died years ago!
