INT. DADDY’S HOUSE – KITCHEN – NIGHT
Daddy, Jill and Tom are having dinner.
Make sure you get some salad. You
know, you should be eating fruits
and vegetables with every meal.
Oh, really? You’ve never told
me that before.
Well, it’s true.
INT./EXT. CAR – DAY
Tom drives. Jill is in the passenger seat.
I want to tell him that I have orange
juice with breakfast every morning,
but he’ll probably tell me that’s not
good enough. He’ll probably say I need
to eat an orange.
The point is not to show him that
we eat vegetables. The point is that
it’s none of his business. So every
time you have the urge to shove your
healthy diet in his face, just tell
him to mind his own business.*
INT. GREEK RESTAURANT – EVENING
Daddy, Jill and Tom are mid-dinner.
Why hasn’t our salad come yet?
Doesn’t our waiter know we have to eat
fruits and vegetables with every meal?
Daddy looks pleasantly surprised, then suspicious as he realizes he’s being mocked.
*I just realized that I’m basically a modern day John Proctor.
