Another Good Talk

Updated: May 14, 2020

The kitchen at 1:33 PM

A PARENT comes in. The TEENAGER eats breakfast while reading.

PARENT: What are you reading?

TEENAGER: (not looking up) A book

PARENT: What book?

TEENAGER: (still not looking up) A book in English

PARENT: What’s it called?

TEENAGER: (flipping book over to see cover then going back to reading) I dunno. Mocking-something.

PARENT: To Kill A Mockingbird? I loved that!

TEENAGER: (not looking up) If you know it, why do you ask?
