AT RECESS (Zoe is sitting on a table with her two friends Lydia and Lucy.)
Lydia: I just can't get over how tired you look! Are you sure you don't need a nap? Zoe: I'm really fine... I just didn't have time to put makeup on today... Lydia: Ah yes, that's what it is! Amazing the difference it makes. Lucy: Don't you have spare in your locker? Zoe: Not... currently... I guess I used it up. Lydia: I can't imagine not doing even the bare minimum to look nice. It's not like it takes long! It's like, basic self respect. You know? Lucy: Mm, but be considerate; frizzy hair and freckles must take more effort to get decent. Lydia: Oh of course! I'm sorry Zoe! Zoe (blushing): Actually... I think you're right... maybe I do still have some spare... I'll go... touch up... Lydia: Oh no! Was I too blunt? (They giggle as Zoe strides away.)
