Scene: Suburban kitchen. Dad, tired and sweaty after long work day, pours self into chair. Son plays in adjacent family room.
Little G: Daddy! Play with me!
TJ: Little G, I’m tired. I just walked in. I had to stand the entire train ride home.
Little G pauses, thinks.
Little G: But you sat the whole bike ride home from the station.
Dad, defeated, exhales and gets up to play.
