An excerpt …
(It’s just a game …)
REX: Hello P.J.! And welcome to “So You Want to be an Adult!”
P.J.: Yeh. Whatever.
REX: So before we get started, tell us … Just why do you want to be an adult?
P.J.: Stupid question.
REX: (still smiling) Thanks.
P.J.: Because I am an adult.
REX: You are?
P.J.: You got a problem with that?
REX: Certainly not! Do you have a problem with that, Bob?
BOB: No way, Rex! Glad you asked!
P.J.: So when do I get the prize?
(The game turns serious.)
SEAN: (appearing suddenly) Miss Sullen?
SEAN: You’re two months behind on your car payment. I’m afraid we’ll have to take it back.
P.J.: You can’t take my car!
CAREY: P.J. Sullen?
CAREY: I’m from the credit card company. You’ve maxed out your current card and your interest rate is now 71%.
P.J.: You can’t do that!
SEAN: (as another character) Miss Sullen, I’m from the I.R.S. We have some questions about your deductions for bubble gum.
P.J.: Wait a minute! Hold it just a darned minute! I can’t handle all this!
(She is not so sure …)
SEAN: Hey, Mom. Got a minute? I want to go to college but I’m broke …
P.J.: You should have thought of that a long …
CAREY: Mom, is it okay if I get married? I don’t have a job, but we love each other.
P.J.: Everybody just slow down!
REX: Sorry, P.J.! Life doesn’t slow down! You’ve got to make those decisions now!
P.J.: I can’t!
BOB: You’ve got to! Right, Rex?
REX: Right you are, Bob! Thanks for mentioning it!
BOB: No problem. Okay P.J., what’s it gonna be? The whole nation is waiting!
P.J.: I don’t want to make those decisions!
REX: What was that she said, Bob?
BOB: She said she doesn’t want to make those decisions, Rex!
