Tom: Mom, what’s for dinner?
Mom washing dishes.
Mom: [sigh] I don’t know, Tom. Ask your father.
Tom walks into the living room. Dad watching television full blast.
Dad: Woohoo! Let’s get it! Come on!
Dad gets up. Stomp. Stomp. Stomp.
Tom: Dad, what’s for dinner?
Dad: Yeah! Touchdown! Go Niners!
Tom doesn’t know anything about football.
Dad: Son! We’re going to the Pizza House after the 2nd quarter! To celebrate!
Last minutes of the 4th quarter the Niners are losing 20-31.
Tom is excited for pizza.
Tom: Dad, you ready to celebrate?
Dad: [silence] sniffs. sniffs.
