What a way to make a livin’

Betty: Did you finish your computer work and send it off?

Sarah: Yeah. I gave it everything I had. ::falls on bed and sighs::

Betty: You oughta buy a bottle of booze and tie one on. Tonight I’m going to drive over and show the [house she owns that’s for-sale-by-owner]. I dread it. And that school play is tonight. God.

Sarah: School plays are brutal.

Betty: It’s like punishment.

Sarah: For what?

Betty: I don’t know what you’re being punished for. But it’s definitely a punishment. ::looks at laptop::

Sarah: ::cracks up:: Hey, I’m thinking about trying to go all weekend without looking at the computer. Think about the farm days–there were no computers. What did we do?

Betty: We went outside and worked. That’s what we did.
