AT RISE: Mom and kids are about to head for the bus to school.
Gavin: Mom. Before I leave, I’m going to bring you the book HERA. And you must have it read by NEXT Wednesday. And then, if you fail? If you fail… I get an extra hour of video game time.
Mom: Um… OK!
Gavin: And if you don’t succeed, I won’t just take the hour anytime like if we have a busy schedule or something.
Mom: Right. We’d come up with a good time for it. Besides I’m not going to lose anyway. I may be illiterate but I’m not a loser!
Gavin: [Tiny, almost imperceptible fart.]
Mom: Good. I’m glad we agree!
Gavin: First of all, that was a scoff of disbelief.
Mom: What? That wasn’t a one click fart?
Gavin: No, that was a one-click fart. But what my butt was saying was a scoff of disbelief. Anyway, I believe you!
Mom: Thanks honey.
