The Importance of College
Act 1, Scene 1: Gram, Mommy, and Mr Ryan driving to Boston for dinner at Mr. Sushi. They are on the Massachusetts Turnpike looking at the Boston skyline.
Mommy: Look Ryan! That tall building is where Mommy went to college.
Mr. Ryan: What is college?
Mommy: College is where you go to school to learn about all kinds of subjects.
Mr. Ryan: Will I go to college?
Mommy: I think you will. But you have to be a good learner and a good listener in kindergarten first.
Gram: And in college there are special clubs you can join for fun too.
Mr. Ryan: What kind of clubs?
Mommy: There are science clubs and art clubs and boating clubs and baseball clubs.
Gram: And video game clubs and acting clubs and photo clubs and poetry clubs too.
Mr. Ryan (camera pans in for very earnest expression): Are there candy clubs?
(note from kj: there is a certain way of looking at the world that is not to be missed. Yesterday I learned from a five year old little boy to include candy clubs. I pass this information on for your precious use when needed)
