Faceless voice behind the camera: How did you do on your own today, Meaghan?
[Hair tousled, chin resting on hands, elbows on table. Meaghan shrugs]: I had a pretty good day. Chad will be home tomorrow, so it’s no biggie.
Faceless voice behind the camera: Can you give us some details, Meaghan?
[Looks up, somewhat annoyed]: Uh, let’s see, there was a worm, some sunshine, a couple of swings, sticks, a chicken salad, a tiny bit of resentment, some health updates, a mother-daughter movie, and milkshakes. Not bad.
Faceless voice behind the camera: You seem tired.
[Steely glare, very annoyed]: It’s 8:47 pm and I am about to take a shower for the first time today. Can we wrap this up?
Faceless voice behind the camera: Sure thing, thanks for [baby cries off set]. Looks like the dog woke up the baby [checks notes] again.
[Meaghan clears throat, stands to leave] Yeah, gotta go. [Leaves stage with hot mic. Mumbles expletive laden tirade about strangling the dog].
Faceless voice behind the camera: Let’s go people. That’s a wrap.
