He's Ready for Kindergarten

The family is seated at the dining room table, having dinner.

The Boy: Let’s see who can be quiet the longest!

Dean Dad & The Wife, silently: Yessss!

TB: Ready? Go!

(pause)

DD makes googly eyes at The Boy.

TB: Ha! Daddy!

DD: You lose!

TB: Again! Ready? Go!

(pause)

DD pantomimes impassioned nose-picking.

TB: Ha! Daddy!

DD: I win again!

TB: Ready? Go!

(pause)

TB pulls his ears forward and opens his eyes wide, looking like Bat-Boy from the Weekly World News

DD: (snarf)

TB: I win!

DD: Good one.

TB: Ready? Go!

(pause)

TB makes the exact same Bat-Boy face again.

DD: Ha!

TB: I win!

DD: I’ve got a good one.

TB: Ready? Go!

(pause)

DD stands up and scratches one buttcheek.

TB: Gross! Daddy!

DD: Heh, heh, heh.

TB: Ready? Go!

(pause)

TB stands up, turns around, and scratches both cheeks with brio, smiling broadly.

DD: TB!

TB: I win!

DD: One more.

TB: Okay. Ready? Go!

The Girl burps.

Hilarity ensues.

The Wife reflects on some of her life choices.

I don’t even want to tell you how many years of formal education were represented at the table.
