A Typical Evening Conversation.

 INT. LIVING ROOM - NIGHT                                         
                                                                           
          Husband and I are sitting on the couch, watching a cheesy        
          Hallmark Channel movie starring Bradley Cooper and Jason         
          Priestly.  The Kid is in bed.                                    
                                                                           
                              THE KID                                      
                         (Shouting, from upstairs)                         
                    Mom!                                                   
                                                                           
                              ME                                           
                         (Shouting)                                        
                    Yeah?                                                  
                                                                           
                              THE KID                                      
                    Dad forgot to give me my medicine!                     
                                                                           
          I look at Husband incredulously.                                 
                                                                           
                              ME                                           
                    Seriously?  You forgot to give him                     
                    his medicine?                                          
                                                                           
                              HUSBAND                                      
                    Oh, yeah.  I guess I did.                              
                                                                           
                              ME                                           
                    I even reminded you right before                       
                    you took him up to bed!                                
                                                                           
                              HUSBAND                                      
                    You did?                                               
                                                                           
                              ME                                           
                    Yes.  I said "don’t forget to take                     
                    your medicine!" to The Kid.  I said                    
                    it really loud so that you would                       
                    hear it, because I knew that if I                      
                    said it to you that you’d say, "you                    
                    don’t have to remind me!  I give                       
                    him his medicine every single                          
                    night!" and you’d be all annoyed                       
                    and insulted that I thought I had                      
                    to remind you to do it.                                
                                                                           
                              HUSBAND                                      
                    Huh.  That is exactly how that                         
                    conversation would have gone.                          
                                                                           
                              ME                                           
                         (throws hands up in                               
                         exasperation)                                     
                    ARRRRGGGHHH!
