The play and the Gynaecologist…..phew!


Jackie and myself email each other as we write some more dialogue for the play.  We meet once a week and look over last weeks writing and talk about what will happen to Ruby and Scarlett next.

A few weeks ago we discussed a health scare Scarlett has, and she finds herself being examined by a gynaecologist.  There is lots of humour as she waits for her examination, and most of it risqué and based on numerous shared storied from both ourselves and friends over the years.

So after Jackie had written the ‘gynae’ scene she emailed it to me, I suggested a few changes, where actions could replace some dialogue, and mailed it back to her.

Two days later I got an email from a guy Jack who I did some Radio courses with at Maynooth University.  He said the scene was hilarious and he especially liked the joke about the ‘wagina’!

I re-read the email twice, I handed the iPhone to Robert who burst into loud raucous laughter ‘only you’, ‘only you could do something like this!’

I was sweating, the guys name was Jack, and Jackie email began with those same four  letters ….J….A…..C…..K!!!

Well Jack in Maynooth is a writer himself and he produces some radio shows in Dublin, so I suppose all things considered it could be worse.

I could have emailed it to my Father-in-law, or the school secretary, or Charlie’s teacher!!

Thing is, I was absolutely sober when I sent the email, it was just I saw the email names, hit return on what I thought was Jackie’s email!!!!

On a positive note, I now know that  the play appeals to men in their twenties, who are not afraid of gynaecologists 🙂
