AT RISE: Boy is showing Mom his hand drawn Dungeons & Dragons map at the dinner table. CJ is sitting next to her.
MOMB: Man! How do you have time to draw all that when you’re always [impersonates zombie operating a computer] derrr...
BOY: [Slams notebook closed.] Man I wish you were ticklish .
CJ: Me too!
MOMB: I know. But instead you guys got the most boring mom in the world.
BOY: [Puts mom in headlock] I guess I’ll have to suffocate you instead.
MOMB: OK just go ahead and choke me out then.
CJ: [Starts teeny-tiny little annoying pinching mom.]
MOMB: OW! [Incredulous.]. You’re PINCHING me!?!
BOY: Oh, pinching! Good idea CJ. [Begins pinching mom.]
MOMB: [Fighting off children.]
BOY: OW! I pinched myself!
ALL: [Pause. Burst out laughing.]
Sounds like you barely survived. Serves you right for being so boring.
