Sorry for the Interruption
Iffy is sitting in the living room, watching TV. Mimi walks into the room.
Iffy yells at the TV: Hold on to the ball, you idiot!!
Mimi strikes a pose, and says: Well, what do you think?
Without looking at her, he says: Nice, Honey.
Mimi frowns and says: I know it’s a big game, but would you please look at me?
Iffy keeps his eyes glued to the TV and says: I did. I really like the color.
Mimi is angry.
She gets in his face and says: The color of what?
Iffy smiles condescendingly, and says: Mimi, please. It’s a very pretty dress, okay? Now, can I please watch the game?
Mimi steps back, and Iffy returns to the game.
Mimi rolls her eyes, frowns, and says: This dress is five years old! I’ve worn it dozens of times! I’m asking you about my new shoes, Iffy!
Without looking away from the TV, he says: That’s good, Honey.
Mimi says: Oh, never mind!
Iffy shouts at the TV: Knock. Him. Down!!
