A Play in One Act
Clara yells DAAAAAAAD. Dad runs up the stairs. Then they call for Mommmmmmmmmmmmmm.
Mom: What’s the problem? A giant spider?
Dad: No. If Nichole read 20 pages in 80 minutes how long does it take her to read each page.
Four minutes a page. That makes Nichole stupid.
Mom: It depends on what Nichole is reading.
Clara: Never mind.
Mom: What type are they using? What size is the font?
Dad: Nichole is a slow reader.
Mom: It depends on what she is reading. Russian literature or a historic romance?
Dad: War and Peace would take a lot longer. That would be about an hour a page.
Mom: It depends. On the other hand Jane Austin is a little tricky.
Clara: I have it figured out just shut the door.
Mom: If she’s reading The Cat in The Hat she’ll race right through it but a good mystery…
Clara: Just shut my door will you.
