(DAD and MOM sit and read. When the phone rings,
DAD Hello... Oh, hello son.
. We’re doing good, thank you...
. Yes, the move went well
. and we’re all unpacked.
. We’re just sitting here, reading a book
. and enjoying our new home...
. (to MOM) He wants to come
. and see the new house.
. (to PHONE) Sure, we’d love
. to have you come for a visit.
MOM Don’t forget to give him our new address.
DAD Right, our new address is now 1457 –
MOM Dear, it’s 1-8-57 -
DAD 1-4-57 Deerfoot Run!
DAD Ahhhh... don’t you have a map?...
MOM Remember, it’s a new community,
. so it’s not even on the maps yet.
DAD You could try MapQuest –
MOM It's not there yet, either.
. You’re going to have
. to give him directions.
DAD Okay-okay, you head west on route 155, 2
. then take Highway 76 North –
MOM What are you doing???!!!
(DAD puts a finger to his lips and giggles silently.)
DAD Yeah – then turn left on Circle Drive.
. It’s the third intersection after the lights.
. Just go to the right...
. Yeah, see you soon.
(DAD hangs up the phone, giggling.)
MOM Why did you do that?
. You sent him totally off
. in the opposite direction.
DAD Eh, he’s a grown man,
. he can figure it out.
MOM He’d have to scour the earth to find us.
. There’s not a hope.
(Still snickering, DAD casually waves off MOM and
gets up to leave. MOM follows, frustrated.)
MOM He’s just going to give up!
DAD Ah, you worry too much.
NAR. Your earthly father
. wouldn’t give you flawed directions,
. why would your HEAVENLY Father?
