Waiting Game

DSC01804Int. Living Room.

A man sits on the floor near the sofa. A 3-year-old girl enters, carrying a doctor’s kit.

P: I’m the doctor. You’re the patient.

F: All right. I’m ready.

P: I’m going to set up in the kitchen. The nurse will get you.

F: I’ll wait here and read a magazine.

P: OK. The nurse will get you.

Girl exits to kitchen. Minutes pass. Girl re-enters.

P: Did the nurse get you?

F: No. I’m just waiting here.

P: OK. I need to finish up with a patient. The nurse will come and get you. OK?

Girl exits to kitchen. Minutes pass. Girl re-enters.
