HOMEWORK ANECDOTE FILLER MATERIAL – THE ABLE INCIDENT


HOMEWORK – THE ABLE INCIDENT

I thought I’d share this brief sketch with you.  Perhaps you’ll learn something from it.  Perhaps not.  Either way, here it is:

BRIEF COMEDIC HOMEWORK PLAY

INT.  LIVING ROOM – DAY

SON 1 is sat at the battered dining room table, doing his mild Key Stage 2 English homework.  He has three words to copy out, and then apply to three sentences of his own design.

DAD (AKA – ME) is busy watching television / keeping SON 2 away from SON 1.

SON 1:  …Daaaaaa’aaaaad?

ME:  Yup.

SON 1:  What does… What does ‘able’ mean?

ME: [Pause] It’s, uh.  It means capab – It means you can do things.  Like you can physically do things.  Uhhh…

SON 1:  So… What does…?

ME:  Like, you know people who are handicapped?  Like the “chicken walker” guy we sometimes see walking up the street?  The guy with, uh, cerebral palsy?

SON 1: Yes

ME:  Well, another way of referring to people who have… trouble walking and so on…  Another way would be to call them “disabled“?  See?

SON 1:  Uh?

ME:  We’re able bodied.  They’re DIS abled. Get it?  Able.

SON 1: Yeah.

PUNCHLINE

CONCLUSION SLASH MORAL
  1. NEVER attempt to think for yourself.
  2. NEVER pull a definition out of your arse.

You have a perfectly good smartphone in your hand – just ask it for answers.

…Sorry about all the anti-disabled stuff.

Thaaaanks.
