Mom: I am going to the library to return those books and the movie. Please go get “The Rookie” and its case.
Kait: Yes ma’am.
Kait leaves the room and a few minutes pass.
Kait: Mom, where is the case to “The Rookie”?
Mom: Um, I don’t know. You watched the movie yesterday. Where did you put the case? Maybe it was accidentally put with the other movies.
Kait: (yelling downstairs) BOYS! We need to find the case the “The Rookie”.
Stomping can be heard as the boys stampeed up the stairs.
Kait: do you guys know where the movie case to “The Rookie” is?
Joe: I don’t know.
Gabe: What are we doing again?
Mom: did anybody check to see if it is in with OUR movies?
Kait checks the wooden coffee table cupboard, twice.
Gabe: It’s in there Kaitlyn, I can see it right through the coffee table.
Kait: It’s not in there Gabe. I checked twice.
Gabe: (head straight down on the coffee table as if peering inside) It’s in there, your just missing it. I can see it with my x-ray vision.
Kait: (totally annoyed) This isn’t a game, Gabe. This is reality.
Mom and dad give eachother a funny look.
Joe: I know where it is! It is down stairs, I’ll get it.
About 10 seconds go by.
Gabe: Oh, I know where it is. It is down stairs on the DVD player. I’ll get it.
5 or so minutes go by.
Mom: Maybe it is in with the other movies.
Joe and Gabe return from their underground lair.
Joe: It isn’t down there.
Gabe: I will check to see if it is with the other movies.
2 or 3 more minutes go by.
Kait: I found it.
Mom: where was it?
Kait: Down stairs.
Mom: where downstairs?
Kait: In the video drawer with the other movies.
Mom: You mean it was with the other movies?
Kait: yeah, somebody must have mistakenly put it away.
