The Loneliness of the Long Distance Jogger

A short play by Sir Harry Flashman

[Two young men are jogging along a bleak canal filled with empty cans of strong lager, syringes and strangled women]

Joggerblogger: I enjoy jogging.

Preston: As do I.

Joggerblogger: I like your sweat bands.

Preston: Thanks. I like your trainers.

Joggerblogger: Can I lick your shins?

Preston: Erโ€ฆ

[One young man breaks into a sprint, leaving the other behind. He sinks to his knees and begins to sob.]

All I want is to taste another manโ€™s shin. Is that so wrong? Curse you Preston! Curse you and your lizard-like swiftness!


Ps we run 4 miles
