Work, Work, Work

Setting: The dinner table.
Time: Dinner time.
Scene: Rainbow is sleeping upstairs, so it's just the mom and the guys. Mom is savoring the beef she lovingly prepared this morning and roasted in the crock-pot all day long. Having wolfed down all the mashed potatoes, the guys want more of the spud, but alas, none remains to be had. Thus, they interrupt their dining to spontaneously make some more.

...aaaand then we stir it up like that...

ASTRO
Daddy, this is some hard work!

MERLIN
Yeah, it is...

NARRATOR: Hard work. Yes. Combining water, boullion, milk, and butter into a Pyrex bowl, shoving it in the mic for three minutes, dumping in flakes and stirring it around is tantamount to torture. And they wonder why it takes Mom so long to make dinner.

LOL! I loved this conversation. It sounded like it came out of my own household. Course..instead of cooking mashed potatoes they'd be talking about cleaning the house. :) Good post!
