Do You Know… The Origin Of Your Weirdness?

24 Sep

Day 14 of the 90 in 90 blog challenge.

(Driving to look at a possible new car for me. The radio is off. We drive in silence. Until-)

Mom: So how are your friends from college doing? What are they up to?
Me: Well, a few of them have found work in Chicago. A couple of them are going to work at Drury Lane.
Mom: What’s that?
Me: It’s a professional theatre in Chicago.
Mom: Oh. (beat.) Does the muffin man work there?
(Pause.)
Me: He used to, but I think he’s going in a new direction now.
Mom: Do you know him?
Me: …The muffin man?
Mom: Yeah. Do you know the muffin man?
Me: …The muffin man?
Mom: The muffin man.
Me: Do I know the muffin man? Who works at Drury Lane?
Mom: Yeah.
Me: … Yeah I know the muffin man.
Mom: The muffin man?
Me: The muffin man.
Mom: So you know the muffin man.
(Ten second pause.)
Mom: And your friends wonder where you get it.

End Scene.
