My Diet: Day 3

Scene 1 Set-up:Image

Hopi healing song in background: “Hey ya hey ya hey ya HEY ya hey ya Heyy ya hey ya….”

The Hopi medicine man is fanning incense smoke shaking and rattling his gourd talisman.

“Chh chh chh chh chh chh…”

The low milky beams of sunlight filter thru dark heavy curtains, dust particles dance in a hypnotic rhythmic trance, intermingling in upward twisting ghost fingers of incense smoke that spreads across the ceiling of Treys Semi-truck like a protective shade to the healing chants of the aged Hopi medicine man that has come to Treys aid….for a small fee.

Diet: Day 3


“I don’t know how long [cough…cough] I’m going to be able to stay awake….”

“I haven’t had a Pepsi [cough] for 2 days now.”

“I can….feel …..something….happening to my body…”.

[Treys glazed eyes are fixed on the rising smoke]

“It feels like [cough….kack] I am fading away….like the smoke”

 “Hey ya hey ya hey ya HEY ya hey ya Heyy ya hey ya….”      [“Chh chh chh chh chh chh…”]

“I can….almost see the great white spirit buffalo [cough] coming across the Great Spirits plains, to take me into the great herd….”[cough]

[Trey licks his dying dry lips]

“I wonder what [cough] Buffalo meat taste like….” He wonders.

 “Hey ya hey ya hey ya HEY ya hey ya Heyy ya hey ya….”   [“Chh chh chh chh chh chh…”]

“I haven’t had breakfast [cough] or dinner for two days….Just that freaking Lean Shake shit……”

[Trey closes his fading eyes and begins humming “I wish I was an Oscar Mayer weiner….”]Image

[The medicine man slaps Treys hand away from his mouth as he begins to gnaw on his fingers]

“Hey ya hey ya hey ya HEY ya hey ya Heyy ya hey ya….”   [“Chh chh chh chh chh chh…”]

[The Old man’s fingers smelled like……..bacon.

[Treys crazed hunger filled eyes glare up at the old man, there is quick movement….a primeval guttural growl…..A blood-curdling scream……..Silence]

[Trey is sitting next to the half eaten medicine man, his vacant eyes fixed on the carnage before him.]

He begins shaking the talisman over the dead old Hopi.

[“Chh chh chh chh chh chh…”]

“I wonder if this has got pepper in it….” The 3rd day Diet starved man wonders….

[“Chh chh chh chh chh chh…”]

  1. Okay, that story made me shudder. Not the part about eating the medicine man; that was totally justified. It was the “Lean Shake for three days” part that terrified me.

  2. I have never seen ‘Drama Queen’ in written form before. Thanks for that. Did you get your money back before you ate the poor medicine man, who was only doing his job, trying to help you? Boy those FBI guys are seriously going to be knockin’ on your doors soon. Better get outta’ town.

    Peace & Love
