********************************

[Lights come up on a closed toilet facing stage right, with a free-standing door in front of it, wide open. Woman on a phone comes walking onstage, plugging her ears as she tries to talk to someone on the other end of the line.]

Me

“Hello? What did you say? Yes, I have an account with AT & T…”

[aside, in a loud stage whisper] “Kids…I’m trying to talk on the phone…can you please go wrestle somewhere else?”

“What? Hello?!?”

[Goes through bathroom door, closes it, and sits down on the toilet.]

Me

“Yes, I’m here. I have a question about a charge on my bill.”

Kid [offstage]

“I have to go to the bathroom! I have to go to the bathroom!”

[Stands up, leaves bathroom to let kid go inside, and closes door.]

Me

“My account number? Let me find that…” [walks offstage] 

[Comes back, plugging ears again, and goes back inside bathroom.]

Me

“I couldn’t find my account number, can you find it another way?”

[Loud knocking]

Me

Never mind.

[Hangs up. Lights down.]
