The Silent Menace

October 3rd, 2002

Kid: “Bye Dad…”

Dad: “Wait, where are you going?”

Kid: “I’m going down to hang out on the street corner with some friends.”

Dad: “Hmmm. Is that Marcel kid going with you? You and your friends are going to talk aloud, right?”

Kid: “Of course, and don’t worry, Marcel couldn’t make it — too windy or something.”

Dad: “Well, okay. Have fun.”

Announcer: “Do you talk with your kids? Kids who talk are 94% less likely to become mimes than kids who don’t. So talk to your kids… and make sure they talk back. Parents… the anti-mime.”

This is Alan Galloway‘s latest proposed radio spot. Citizen Galloway is devoted to protecting us all from quiet terrorism — if you’re an American, memorize his other dispatches immediately. It’s your patriotic duty.

I haven’t seen Alan in at least six months but we’ll have lunch tomorrow, unless enemy agents trap him in an invisible box.

    Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments and romances, best friends, favorite foods, secret fears and hopes and dreams.
    A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.
