Blade and Mumsy
Mumsy: You have everything you need?
Blade: Yes, Mumsy. I have everything I need.
Mumsy: And you’re wearing clean undergarments?
Blade: Of course, Mumsy.
Mumsy: And you won’t be too frightened?
Blade: No, Mumsy. I’ll be fine.
Mumsy: Because I can come with you.
Blade: (sighs) We’ve been through this before, Mumsy. You can’t come to college with me. It’s something I have to do myself.
Mumsy: As long as you’re sure.
Blade: I am, Mumsy.
Mumsy: (pats his hand) All right then.
Blade: (freezes and gasps) Wait. Did you pack my grey poupon?
Mumsy: No, I thought you did.
Blade: We must go back! I can’t go to school without my grey poupon!
Mumsy: (stands up) Driver! My son forgot his grey poupon! Turn this vehicle around immediately! We need to go back! (sits)
Blade: (a minute later) Why is he not turning around?
Mumsy: I have no idea. (stands) Driver! I said turn this vehicle around immediately!
Blade: Perhaps I should go and speak to him privately.
Mumsy: (stands) No, you just sit. I’ll take care of this.
Mumsy walks to the front of the bus and returns a moment later.
Blade: What did he say?
Mumsy: (indignantly) He told me we’ll have to disembark and catch something or other going in the opposite direction!
Blade: Of all the nerve!
Mumsy: That’s the last time I hire this limo company!
Blade: (shakes his head) I knew this was a bad idea when he refused to get out and open the door for us.
