Adventures in Food: Chinese Take Out

Sunday, March 7th 2021


AT RISE: Dad is laid out on the floor of the living room with a pulled back. Kids are doing stuff and mom comes out of the kitchen.

MOM: Well kids, daddy’s back is out, so he can’t cook tonight. Maybe we’ll order Chinese takeout.

KIDS: [Shrug.] Mmm. [Disinterested.] Sure.

MOM: [Raises tone.]. O-o-o-or… [Pause] *I* could cook!?

KIDS: [Jump up.] Takeout! Chinese takeout! Ooh yes, Chinese please! Yes please!
