A conversation between a mother and a teenage son.
“Okay. Are we ready to go? Wait a minute. What are those?” – Mother (pointing to Old Boy’s face)
“My new sunglasses. What do you think? Pretty cool, huh?” – Old Boy
“Um…no. Not really.” – Mother
“What do you mean? These glasses are fantastic. How can you say they aren’t great?” – Old Boy
“Because they aren’t. If your mother won’t be honest with you, who will? They look like cartoon character glasses.” – Mother
“You have to try them on.” – Old Boy
“No.” – Mother
“Come on, Mom. They’ll make you look super cool. I promise.” – Old Boy
Mother looks at sunglasses. Mother looks at son. Mother takes a deep breath and puts sunglasses on.
“You look great. Go look in the mirror and check yourself out. Bet you’ll want to get a pair too.” – Old Boy
“Highly doubtful.” – Mother
