Semi-dementia Anecdote

[Scene One: Kitchen. Father, 71, sitting at the counter. Daughter, 17, frying omelet.]

 

Dad, are banks open on Sundays?

What the hell is that?

What?

A bay!

I said bank.

Speak up, goddamnit.

Are banks open on Sundays?

What the hell is a bay?

 

[Daughter walks around counter, writes B-A-N-K on a napkin. She imagines this will become a father-daughter inside joke.]

 

Are they open on Sundays?

[Father reads the napkin then gets off the stool and walks into the den.]

Dad, What are you doing?

I need the book of meanings.

 

*BIOGRAPHICAL ASIDE: Does not become a father-daughter inside joke
