45. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right

Wednesday, October 15th, 4:00pm
Michael (and Agatha)

 

Michael sits at the window, reading. Agatha sits beside him.

Agatha: Hello.

Michael: (glances away from his iPad and smiles)

Agatha: I’m going to my granddaughter’s house for dinner. (gestures to a dish on her lap) I’m bringing the bread pudding.

Michael: (mumbles without looking up) That’s nice.

Agatha: My great granddaughter Kitty will be there. Such a precious thing she is, though the clothes she wears! I never know what children are thinking these days. What’s that thing you’re reading?

Michael: This? It’s an iPad.

Agatha: (sighs) All these new-fangled gadgets. Why, in my day we used to read things like newspapers, and books. We wore things that covered us up and baked our own bread pudding!

Michael: (shrugs and stares at his iPad)

Agatha: (after a few minutes) I’m going to my granddaughter’s house for dinner.

Michael: (rolls eyes) And I bet you’re taking bread pudding.

Agatha: How did you know?

Michael: Lucky guess.
