CHILD: Mama, what’s that book about the whole history of the Earth?”
MOTHER:Oh, the one we saw at the toy store? I think it’s ‘Life Story.’ You have it up in your room.
(CHILD heads upstairs. PARENTS enjoy ten remarkably quiet minutes.)
CHILD (off stage): Mom, Dad! I found that book. It was in the Library!
MOTHER: Oh, okay, bring it down and we’ll read it.
(CHILD slides book down stairs, then walks down himself.)
CHILD: I kinda had to pile up all those books in my room.
PARENTS (in unison): Oh.
