Joey: Bobby sat on my foot!
Bobby: No I didn’t. And besides, it was an accident.
Parent 1: It’s just a bruise.
Joey: It really hurts. I can’t walk.
Parent 1: I wonder if it’s broken.
Parent 2: It’s not broken. He’s being dramatic. He just doesn’t want to go to school tomorrow.
Joey: What’s doormatic?
Bobby: I started to sit down and he put his foot on the chair on purpose.
Parent 1: He needs an x-ray.
Parent 2: No he doesn’t. And I’m not going to the Emergency Room at 3 PM on a Sunday. We’ll take him to his doctor tomorrow.
Parent 1: There’s no x-ray machine at his doctor’s office. We’ll need to go from there to the hospital for x-rays. It’ll take all day. And anyway, we both work tomorrow.
Joey: It’s turning black and blue!
Parent 1 & Parent 2: What are we going to do now?
