MEADOW: 

(from the other room)

 Daddy!?!


DAD gets up and goes to MEADOW's bedroom. She is sitting upright in her bed. She looks startled.


DAD: 

What? What’s Wrong?


MEADOW: 

There’s a fly in my room and I'm too scared to sleep because I saw a video where a fly flew in someone's mouth and crawled out their nose. They flew in their ears too!


Short Beat.

DAD:

Um.. well, you shouldn’t be scared because that was just a video. In real life, a fly wouldn’t have any reason to go in your mouth because it would just kill them and they want to live just like you and I want to. Also, that’s why you have ear wax in your ears. It’s to keep stuff that doesn’t belong in there, out.


LONG BEAT as she turns this idea over in her head.


She lays down, turns towards the wall, and pulls the blankets up to her chest.


MEADOW: 

Thank you for telling me that.
