Relaxed and Mature
Iffy and Mimi are face to face.
Iffy says: Those new pants you bought me are too tight, Mimi.
Mimi says: They’re exactly the same as the ones you’re wearing.

He says: Except that they don’t have the label in the waistband that says, “relaxed fit for mature men.”
Although, I do hate that label.

She tilts head head and says: You don’t consider yourself a relaxed and mature man, Iffy?
Iffy, off camera, says: Sure, I’m relaxed…sometimes.
And I can act mature
when I need to.
Iffy is facing forward. He is ticked off. Mimi is behind him, snickering.
He says: But the relax and mature on that stupid label is just a euphemism for lazy and fat.
The pants company is making fun of me!
