The Petulant Junky.

The Scene: The Junky's Wife is in the bathroom, brushing her teeth. Petulant junky is lying on the bed in his underwear.

"Come get back in bed with me. Let's sleep for 20 minutes."

"I can't. I've got to go to work. The boss is in town, and I'm behind."

"I don't understand why it's ok for me to be late for work, but you can't be late."

"But I'm already late, and it's not ok for you to be late. That's why we need to go."

"We never get to spend time in bed together. I don't understand why you can't just sleep some more with me."

"I need to go to work."

"I just think we need to spend some more time together."

"I really need to go to work. I'm kind of behind because I missed a day last week and the week before, so I need to go."

"You don't. You just want me to think about how you work and I didn't have a job for a long time. You just love to make me feel like shit..."

"No, that's not it. I need to go. I have work I've got to do."

"What are you trying to say?"

"I need to go to work. I'm leaving in 10 minutes. Let's get ready. I'll pack a lunch for you."

"I just don't understand why you..."

If he wants to spend more time in bed then he needs to not have the Stray over. Then y'all can go to bed at 8pm, wake up at 6 and suggle in bed for hours.

Did he go all slack limbed when you tried to pick him up and put him in the car? (I think it's genius that kids know how to do that before they can even talk much less having ever had a physics class.)
