Scene From an Uno Game
Posted on April 16, 2003 Posted by John Scalzi
SCENE OPENS on John and Athena, playing a game of UNO.
John (setting down a red four card): Four. Your turn, honey.
Athena (sets down card): Draw two, daddy.
John: Okay. (draws two)
Athena (sets down another card): Draw two again, daddy.
John: Um, okay. (draws two more)
Athena (sets down yet another card): Now you have to draw two more, daddy.
John: Wow. Three Draw Two cards in a row. That’s pretty evil, Athena.
Athena (reprovingly): That’s not a very nice thing to say, daddy.
John: You’re right, honey. I’m sorry.
Athena (sets down another card): Draw four, daddy.
