Terry comes on stage, VOD (Voice of Dad) is heard
VOD: Hey Terry, how’s your day going?
Terry: Oh hi Dad, it's OK, busy.
VOD: What about that rain this afternoon?
Terry: A real pain, I was planning to have some friends over, sure messed me up!
VOD: Well you were complaining about the hot weather yesterday, I thought you might appreciate the rain to cool things off.
Terry: Well that’s the way things go, one day so hot that a guy, like, cooks, next day can’t do anything on account of rain!
VOD: Sorry, son, but with all the fun things you have to work and play with, I didn’t think it would matter, a little rain, or some heat.
Terry: Well, thing is there’s like no happy medium it seems. And I need some new games, maybe a new four-wheeler.
VOD: But Terry, I thought you had a four-wheeler.
Yeh, a 350cc. No one drives a 350cc anymore; it's all like 750 and bigger.
VOD: Sorry, I thought you liked it when I got it for you . . .
Terry: Oh, it's OK, for a smaller unit, and I appreciate all you did, but . .
VOD: Did you have a good time with Tracy? I suggested that she go over and spend some time with you.
Terry: Dad, Tracy is like so fifties!
Terry: Right outta touch.
VOD: Sorry, I . . .
Terry: Like I say Dad, it's not that I am complaining, it's just . . .
VOD: Really? You sound a lot like I do when I am complaining.
Terry: Look Dad, I am kinda busy right now, maybe we could . . .
VOD: Sorry, didn’t mean to interfere, I . . .
Terry: Later Dad, OK?
VOD: Sure, later Terry.
