Michael (and Agatha)
Michael sits at the window, reading. Agatha sits beside him.
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.
