Monday, November 10th, 4:00pm
Betty and Karla

 

Betty: What do you want to do on your birthday.

Karla: (mumbling, regarding her cellphone) Whatever.

Betty: It’s coming up in two weeks. I know your dad wants to go out for dinner.

Karla: (mumbling) Sure.

Betty: It’s important to him.

Karla: (mumbling) I know.

Betty: Would you please put that thing down and talk to me?

Karla: (snorts at something on the phone) Sure, just a sec.

Betty: Now!

Karla: Just wait.

Betty snatches the phone away.

Karla: What the fuck, Mom. I was reading something!

Betty: And I’m talking to you about your birthday!

Karla: Yeah whatever. I’ll go out for dinner. Now can you give me back my phone?

Betty: (hands the phone back) What about Saturday the 22nd?

Karla: (mumbling, regarding her cellphone) Whatever.

 

Next stop: Tuesday, November 11th, 11:00am
