Our prompt: Use the words "Aztec" "eggnog" and "felicity" in the context of a 1-page Christmas script.
Seeing as how I had already included a lot of eggnog talk in my most recent contest submission, I decided this would be a sequel of sorts to that short.
INT. LIVING ROOM - CHRISTMAS MORNING
MIKE, 27 with a burgeoning paunch, takes conservative sips of his eggnog while his brother HANK, 29, and Hank's fiance ANNA, also 29, wrestle wrapping paper from the harmless claws of GOZER, a two month-old kitten.
They are seated in a small triangle, each point fortified with a pile of gifts.
We're going clockwise, right?
Hank's turn! (beat) I think you'll like this one.
Hm, this looks a lot like a record.
No way! Really?
Did you seriously find Felicity Rag on vinyl?
Guess you'll have to open it.
Where did you find it? I looked everywhere!
Hank gently untapes the wrapping paper from the gift.
Oh... it's a calendar... for 2013...
Hank opens the calendar.
...and it's completely blank.
It's an Aztec calendar, get it?
Is this because I faked hypoglycemia to steal your eggnog last year?
