The Futility of Arguing with Mothers

FADE IN:

INT. KITCHEN/DINING ROOM – DAY
Kris, Jack’s sister, inspects the fridge noting a couple of half-finished bottles of wine and an unopened can of Coke.

Leona, Kris and Jack’s mother, walks into the room and is immediately accosted by Kris about the lack of appropriate beverages in the fridge.

KRIS
Mum, you need to buy some juice.

LEONA
Kris, you know I don’t buy juice.

KRIS
You don’t buy juice?

LEONA
No.

KRIS
But… OK, I’ll go buy the juice.

LEONA
I only buy juice when its on sale.

KRIS
You never buy juice. Is it never on sale?

LEONA
There’s not enough space in the fridge.

KRIS
Wait, do you not buy juice unless its on sale or because there is no space in the fridge?

LEONA
I drink water.

Kris is about to retort back but then realises that her mother’s last comment doesn’t answer any of her above questions. She stands in front of the open fridge, confused, as Leona┬áleaves the room.

FADE OUT.
