Written by Joe Janes

Ernest, 60s

Wanda, 60s

(Lights up on Ernest and Wanda at the breakfast table. Wanda sits in a bathrobe, slumped over a cup of coffee and a newspaper. Ernest sits next to her, also in a bathrobe, smiling brightly.)


How did you sleep last night?


Like a baby!

(Wanda sniffs the air. Smells something foul. Looks at Ernest who nods, still smiling. Wanda shakes her head in disgust. Lights fade.)
