“Peter? Peeeee-Terrr!!”

“Oh, Helen don’t scream!”

“But John he’s been gone for a least

10 minutes.”

“Helen, the boy’s just playing with us.”

“I dunno. John.”

“O.K., Helen. PETER! GET HERE NOW!”

“John for heaven’s sake.”

“Well.”

“Well, nothing! Don’t scream at the boy.”

“The boy doesn’t behave himself Helen.”

“O.K. sometimes he is a little inattentive.

I admit that.”

“Helen, inattentive? How about belligerent.”

“John, the boy wouldn’t know how. He’s four.”

“From the day he was born you’ve defended

his right to be a child.”

“John?”

“What!”

“He is a child.”

“It’s pretty obvious, the way he acts!”

“John, he’s just a boy.”
