Conversations with Normal People
The setting – A typical suburban home. Comfortable, relaxed decor. No clutter in the scene.
The characters –
The Slob’s Friend
Various and assorted children of all heights.
(The scene opens as the Slob’s child runs out of the Friend’s master bedroom.)
Slob: (gasps) CHILD, what are you doing? Why were you in there?
Friend: (interrupting) Oh, it’s okay, they’re playing Hide-and-Seek.
Slob: In your bedroom?
Friend: Yeah, kids love to hide in my closet.
Slob: (incredulous) And that’s okay?
Friend: Um, yeah . . . why?
(Fade to blackout as Friend merrily continues playing cards while Slob stares ahead, clearly dumbfounded.)
