I. A Conversation at the Grownup Table, as Imagined at the Kids’ Table
  • MOM:Pass the wine, please. I want to become crazy.
  • DAD:O.K.
  • GRANDMOTHER:Did you see the politics? It made me angry.
  • DAD:Me, too. When it was over, I had sex.
  • UNCLE:I’m having sex right now.
  • DAD:We all are.
  • MOM:Let’s talk about which kid I like the best.
  • DAD:(laughing) You know, but you won’t tell.
  • MOM:If they ask me again, I might tell.
  • FRIEND FROM WORK:Hey, guess what! My voice is pretty loud!
  • DAD:(laughing) There are actual monsters in the world, but when my kids ask I pretend like there aren’t.
  • MOM:I’m angry! I’m angry all of a sudden!
  • DAD:I’m angry, too! We’re angry at each other!
  • MOM:Now everything is fine.
  • DAD:We just saw the PG-13 movie. It was so good.
  • MOM:There was a big sex.
  • FRIEND FROM WORK:I am the loudest! I am the loudest!
  • (Everybody laughs.)
  • MOM:I had a lot of wine, and now I’m crazy!
  • GRANDFATHER:Hey, do you guys know what God looks like?
  • ALL:Yes.
  • GRANDFATHER:Don’t tell the kids.

Working on my shot list for Storyboarding class and all I can think of is this song.
