INT. DADDY’S HOUSE – KITCHEN – NIGHT

Daddy, Jill and Tom are having dinner.

DADDY
Make sure you get some salad. You
know, you should be eating fruits
and vegetables with every meal.

JILL
Oh, really? You’ve never told
me that before.

Daddy persists:

DADDY
Well, it’s true.

INT./EXT. CAR – DAY

Tom drives. Jill is in the passenger seat.

TOM
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.

JILL
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.*

TOM
Agreed.

INT. GREEK RESTAURANT – EVENING

Daddy, Jill and Tom are mid-dinner.

DADDY
Why hasn’t our salad come yet?

JILL
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.

Have you ever been too proud to admit to something that would save you (from death or further nagging)?

  2. Poor dad just wants you to eat your veggies. Yet you mock him. One day you will wake up with a head of broccoli in your bed. ;-)
