We join this episode already in progress.
7:50 a.m. - Hopeful time of departure: 8 a.m.
Teenage Boy: Mom, I don't have any clean jeans, so I'm wearing these again. I got them out of the hamper.
Mom (wide-eyed and bending down to smell leg of jeans): Why didn't you tell me this last night?
TB: I didn't know.
Mom: Don't you have any shorts you can wear?
TB (shaking head): They're all too small.
Mom: How about the khaki pair downstairs in the laundry room?
TB: I'll try them and see. (Ambles down the stairs.)
Mom (gathering laundry and racing downstairs to find TB shut in the laundry room): Do they fit?
Mom: Leave me the jeans you were wearing so I can put them in the washer.
TB ambles up the stairs. Mom grabs car keys and purse. TB returns to the bathroom saying, "We're gonna be late anyway."
MOM (panic-stricken and snatching his lunch box off the table): I'll turn the car around!
