Do you feel lucky?

The scene opens on a mother resting on the living room couch. She is listening to father and son in the kitchen. The father is doing dishes, having placed the infant son in his high chair with an empty oatmeal tube to play with.
Mother hears the soft thud of the oatmeal tube again and again, as the baby enthusiastically pushes it off the highchair tray and onto the floor, gleefully leaning forward as he watches it fall and bounce.




The thudding stops.

“Young man,” says the father “there are only so many times I am going to pick that up for you. So, you’ve got to ask yourself… Do you feel lucky?”

The mother cracks up.
