By Brooks Even
Setting:  Even Basement, all cast members present, Brooks holding a curtain rod.

Brooks:  Dad, are you old?
Zach:  Well, yeah, kinda...?  (puzzled)
Brooks:  Dad, are you real old?
Zach:  Well, not that old.  (puzzled)
Anne & Zach:  (laughing)
Adlyn:  Why you laughing?
Brooks:  Dad, you need this.  (Handing Dad a curtain rod.)
Zach:  (silent, puzzled)
Brooks:  To help you walk.
Zach:  Oh, like a cane!
Anne & Zach:  (laughing)
Zach:  Where did he learn that?
Anne:  Well, the only thing I can think of is when I dropped the kids off at preschool the other day.  (Located next to a senior housing area.)  Brooks saw an older man with a walker on the sidewalk and he asked me what it was.  I told him it was a walker, and sometimes when people get older, they need help walking.
