S01 E02 – The Store (Prologue 2)

Intro Music – Breathe, by Chill Carrier https://chillcarrier.bandcamp.com/ 

Voiceover: Manifestations is a podcast of the Ostium Network 

Voiceover: Time is not linear, but our story is. 

Please join us … on our journey. We, are Manifestations. 

Music becomes dramatic then fades out 

Location: Grocery Store Background: muzak, conversations, beeping at checkout 

Scott – Hey! (Distant, but getting closer) Scott – Picking something up for diner? 

Alan – Oh, Hey Scott. This — is for the dogs, but yeah. Ethan wants me to pick up some things to make chicken parm for the next family visit. 

Scott – Sounds good. Scott – Have you thought about going to Baltimore Comic Con this year? 

Alan – Yes, I definitely want to go. 

Scott – Will Ethan go? 

Alan – I always ask, but you know that answer. No interest at all. He’d go if made a special request, but he’d have a terrible time. So, I wouldn’t do that. 

Scott – Understandable. Karen would have fun in the city, but not the convention. Scott – Hey, I saw Charles Dowd will be there. I’m really liking his posts on Instagram for Big Fat Charlie. 

Alan – He created a Twitter account for the cat too that’s pretty funny … and snarky. 

Scott – I’ll have to look it up. 

Alan – JM DeSantis will be in Baltimore too. It might be the last chance I get to see him in a while and I want to get him to sign his new book. It’s always great to see the other regulars too. 

Scott – Well, let’s get together this weekend and make plans for the convention. 

Alan – Sure. I’ll look at my reward points. Maybe we’ll get a discount on the room. Send me a text when you’re free. 

Scott – Sure thing. Later. 

Alan – Catch ya later. 

Walking, continued checkout sounds, then a strange high pitched sound as we hear shopping carts bang together. 

Alan – I am so sorry. Let me help you with that.
