Frustrating Fours: A one-act play

He actually does this kind of thing all the time.

Me: It’s almost time for bed. Put your Legos away in their box.

T: All of them? Do I have to take this apart? (Shows me the “batcave” he built.)

Me: No. Set that on your Spider-Man table. Put all the other pieces in the box.

T: (sadly) Okay.

[I go into the kitchen to finish cleaning up from dinner. I hear Legos being tossed into their box. Then, I hear him sniffling back tears.]

T: (Enters the kitchen, tears in his eyes.)

Me: What’s wrong?

T: (Crying) You said I had to take the batcave apart.

Me: (What – the – Fuck?)
