"MAN! What a life?"

The one guy says.

to The other, who picks his nose as he listensand flicks the booger off his thumb.

and Into the air a girl looks, at the two men.

and:::crinkles:::

Her nose, You know?

what She's thinking "Nose picking is gross!" her face...tells all.

Next to her a "mother" is cradling her new born baby. Who is maybe two months old?

and Very tiny.

(The mother looks)...Like she knows what she is doing!!!

Not that the baby appears to be needing anything.

B-A-B-Y

yawns the girl next to the mother.

"Smiles and says precious"

the mother responds,

"HOW'D YOU KNOW THAT'S HER NAME GIRL!?!?"

:::shrugs:::

(She hadn't thought)

"The baby's name was precious? Kind of a dumb name actually..."

 GIRL!!! Saw a movie called 'Precious'. Once, the main character was an obese black teenaged girl...With an abusive mother... GIRL!!! Watched it because...OPRAH...endorsed it!

MAN!!! his Picking his nose again???

She scolds him.

(Silently with her eyes)

and thinks, "About how many boogers are on the floor?"

"How many boogers are in the city?!"

"HOW MANY BOOGERS THERE ARE IN THE WORLD!!! IN THE UNIVERSE!!!"

"And so?"

on All this thought about boogers has made her feel...

:::NAUSEOUS:::

A man in a white coat comes out just in time and calls.

"Her! Into his office!"

 Girl stands up and moves.

"TOWARDS...THE...ROOM!!!"
