Synopsis
Text bubbles depict a text conversation between GIRLIE (Late 20s) and an unnamed character. She is just boarding her plane from Oklahoma to New York and has no time for chit chat. Girlie exits her plane that has just landed at JFK International Airport, hails a cab, and gets in. Her cabbie is CLARK (40s), an attractive blue-collar stereotype. He begins to talk to her about how technology has changed his line of work and how it's probably going to effect the world. They continue down the road and she begins to receive more text messages from L (unknown). These are seemingly unwanted texts but she responds. All the while maintaining light banter with Clark about money, old passengers, and her unique New York persona. As more text messages from L, clearly sexual in nature, flood her phone, Girlie takes the time to ignore them and engage in conversation with Clark. She tells him she's from Gage, Oklahoma, and that she is a computer programmer. They talk about ones and zeroes, booleans, and bytes, until they come to a complete stop in New York traffic.

While sitting in traffic, she gets another slew of messages from L. Girlie is clearly conflicted...
