Int. Glenna’s House - Supper Table
Tuck, Glenna’s eight year old brother, Glenna, SOAS, and ___, Glenna’s older sister he’s dating, mother, and live=in Boyfriend are eating skinless, boneless chicken breasts and Uncle Ben’s Roasted Chicken Ready Rice, among other things. Tuck, who hates veggies, reluctantly accepts some, even more reluctantly accepts a heaping half cup or the rice. SOAS mimics his behavior by accident.
SOAS, don;t you like rice?
No, I’m fine. I just love it. Isn’t it usually WHITE?
SOAS moves the yellow pile on his plate a bit. Tuck moves a bit of his rice around, finally eating it after catching his mother’s warning eye.
Yuck! I can’t believe I just chased a pile of albino mouse turds around my plate and actually ATE them!
Glenna keeps her head ducked, praying SOAS doesn’t recognize her as the ice cream depositor. SOAS bravely squares his shoulders and takes his first bite of the rice.
There’s no sugar on it!
