New Skit: DO YOU KNOW?

I just wrote this. Let me know what you think. I know it doesn't fit into the theme, but I was inspired, and at least it's something.


DO YOU KNOW?

CHARACTERS:
TV ANNOUNCER
WOMAN AT HOME
KIDS

SCENE: WOMAN IS WATCHING TV. UPSTAIRS HER KIDS ARE SLEEPING.

TV ANNOUNCER: It’s 10:00. Do you know where your children are?

WOMAN: Yes, they’re upstairs sleeping.

TV ANNOUNCER: Well la-de-freaking-da.

WOMAN: Excuse me?

TV ANNOUNCER: You heard me, Ms. “Oh-my-children-are-so-secure.” You know, other families aren’t quite that lucky!

WOMAN: I know we’re quite lucky indeed.

TV ANNOUNCER: No need to be smug about it. Your kind make me sick.

WOMAN: I’m sorry. I-

TV ANNOUNCER: How do you know that your kids won’t be into drugs in a few years?

WOMAN: Because I trust my kids. They tell me everything.

TV ANNOUNCER: Well don’t you have just the ideal life, Mrs. Walton?

WOMAN: I’d like to think so. What are you trying to prove?

TV ANNOUNCER: Look, lady, my job is to inspire trepidation in the hearts of parents. How can I do my job if you’re so freaking sure of yourself?

WOMAN: Well, do you want me to wake my kids up and send them out to play in a dark alley? Would that make you feel better?

TV ANNOUNCER: Are you patronizing me?

WOMAN: No, not at all. *Runs upstairs* C’mon kids, wake up, it’s time to play outside.

KIDS’ VOICES: Do we have to?

WOMAN: Yes, now get your coats.

WOMAN AND KIDS COME DOWNSTAIRS.

KID 1: But it’s scary outside.

KID 2: And there are drugs and stuff.

KID 1: And I was having a good dream.

KID 2: And I have a big test tomorrow.

WOMAN: You need to see the real world. Now go.

KIDS: Aw man.

AN HOUR LATER, WOMAN IS STILL IN FRONT OF TV.

TV ANNOUNCER: It’s 11:00. Do you know where your children are?

WOMAN: …Oh my God, my kids!
