Ethan: Francis, if you let yourself believe in a villain and win lose scenario …you just lose sight of the ideas. You’re not a citizen, or a voter,you become a consumer…always remember your right to think.
Simon: So are we getting snacks?
Francis: Nah he went on one of his life lessons again…
Dad says we probably ran off the road last night because of the Dinosaurs!
It was OK though. He grabbed me and kept me from falling out the open window.
Dad showed me how the wheel bent when we hit that persons driveway…
My dad is the greatest. I knew he had everything under control. So when someone stopped to say hello, I went and told them “we’ve got this.” Just like dad always says… he says “it’s ok, I’ve got this. Everything is under control.” Real calm like that. It makes me feel better and it must have made them feel better too. Because then they left.
After that, dad asked me to sit in the car and let him know if I saw any mountain lions or bears. He kept asking for a Tea Bar. But I didn’t see any tea in the car so I just waited.
Today, dad says, we are going to go get a REAL jack and a Tea…T Bar and Flash Light.
Francis: oh hey, I’m just taking my bath… Ethan: is this your annual fake bath… France: I don’t know what you are referring to… Ethan: You do this all the time so I won’t give you a real bath… Francis: I see you have upped your skin care…it’s better late than never… Ethan: oof… Francis: see, no water, no need, I’m all cleaneded. Ethan: ok I’ll see you next month. It’s always great chatting.
Simon: ok dad, you know how you make a fruit cordial? Ethan: No how? Simon: I don’t know, you’re nice to it or something… Francis: Hold it! Hold it! Ethan: Oh boy, I need a drink, you want anything France? Francis: yeah, I need to get uncomfortable, I mean, more comfortable.
Simon: …I’m just saying I don’t think it was a dino-sore…but I did hear something… Ethan: Nah man, I saw one the other night…jagged teeth…hopped around in the bushes… Simon: whaaaa???? I know, I’ll ask Francis. He never lies. Ethan: now for the important thing…you want a sammich? Simon: Sandwiches!
Ethan: Ok boys are you ready? Francis: what is THIS! What are we doing? Simon: No dad. Not again. I’m not helping again. Ethan: someone has to read the instructions. Who’s my helper? Simon: I don’t think you’ve learned your lessons from the other two beds we put together…you’re a writer, you should just leave your bed in the floor. Francis: according to the instructions and your comprehension…frustration…you’re a Virgo…this will take you a decade.
Ethan: Yeah, but, this time, will be different…
Francis: I don’t know how to tell you this…but we don’t think so.
