How I Met U2!

Well I didn't actually....but I wrote this for another forum and thought I'd post it here as well for my PLEBA sisters.

...

HOW I MET U2

*Echo sits at the "Lost & Found" window.*

ADAM: Excuse me. I've lost a spoon.

ECHO: Can you describe it?

ADAM: Well...it was vaguely spoon-shaped.

ECHO: Hmm...*rummages through box* *picks out a pair of eyeglasses* This it?

ADAM: Em...no.

ECHO: *rummages some more* *Picks out key ring* This what you're looking for?

ADAM: Not quite.

ECHO: *rummages* *pulls out a green glass bong* Is this it?

ADAM: *pause* Why yes. Yes it is. *Takes the bong, grinning* Thank you, miss. *exits*

*Later that day.*

EDGE: Hello.

ECHO: Can I help you?

EDGE: I've lost my hat.

ECHO: You're wearing a hat.

EDGE: What, you think a guy like me only has one hat?

ECHO: What does this lost hat look like?

EDGE: Exactly like the one I'm wearing.

ECHO: *confused* Why does one need so many hats?

EDGE: *looks left, looks right* *removes hat, points* Because I lost this as well.

ECHO: Oh my. Okay, let me look...for the hat, I mean. *rummages* I've got this. *pulls out Viking helmet*

EDGE: No, no, that won't do at all.

ECHO: I'm afraid it's all I have.

EDGE: Thanks anyway. Good day.

ECHO: *calls after him* If it's any consolation, you have very pretty eyes!

*Later.*

LARRY: Hello, is this the Lost and Found?

ECHO: *points to the sign*

LARRY: Ah. Em...I've lost my will to live.

ECHO: Oh dear. Okay, hold on a sec.

*She climbs up on the counter, reaches up and removes the "Lost and Found" sign. She crawls back down, retrieves another sign that says "The psychiatrist is IN" and places it on the counter.*

ECHO: Please go on.

LARRY: Well, you see, lately I've just had this feeling that-- MMPH! *everything goes black*

*Later still.*

ADAM: Hello again. *his eyes are a little red*

ECHO: What's this? Come back to tell me you've lost your inhibitions?

ADAM: Actually I'm missing me bandmate. His name's Larry. Short, blonde.

ECHO: Let me look. *rummages* No, sorry. I've got Buddy Rich...Charlie Watts...Max Weinberg....but no Larry Mullen.

ADAM: Hm. Okaay.

ECHO: Come back in an hour, perhaps someone will have turned him in.

ADAM: Will do. *exits*

*Echo reaches down and gives Larry a swift kick.*

ECHO: Quit struggling, You're crazy if you think I'm gonna untie you. I can get fifty bucks for you on E-bay, easy.

*Shortly thereafter.*

STING: Excuse, me Miss?

ECHO: What's up?

STING: I'm afraid I've lost my punk credibility.

ECHO: You're not a member of U2.

STING: Can you help me or can't you?

ECHO: Um...*rummages* Here, this is the closest thing I've got. *Hands him a copy of "London Calling" on vynil*

STING: Thanks. *exits*

*Towards the end of the day.*

ECHO: Can I help you?

BONO: I've found new motivation for my philanthropic endeavors.

ECHO: Excuse me?

BONO: This is the Lost and Found, right?

ECHO: Yes.

BONO: Well I figured, all day long people come up to you telling you about things they've lost. I thought it would be nice if for once someone approached you just to tell you about something they'd found. I found new motivation for my philanthropic endeavors.

ECHO: How charming.

BONO: Ain't I? Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go save sub-Saharan Africa. *exits*

Meeting Larry:
*MG shows Larry poster*
*Larry reads poster*
*Larry smiles and says "Thank you that's very nice of you"*
*Larry signs paper, shakes MG's hand*
*MG almost dies then sees tearaway pants and gets bad ideas*

Very creative and enjoyable to read.

'viking helmet'!!!!'I lost this as well'

'Buddy, Charlie, Max-no Larry!!!

And certainly that is Bono . But he also does have a penchant for losing or misplacing things, doesn't he?

------------------
If you are really good friends with The Edge, you can just call him The~ Adam

The right side of my brain is kinda redundant~ Larry

LOL ... leave it to Bono to use to use the Lost and Found for something he found.
