Scene 1 -- We're Not in Manhattan Anymore

The Time: Last night, 2 A.M.

The Place: A darkened bedroom, somewhere in the Sticks of Upstate, New York

Our lead characters are sleeping soundly after (finally) getting their (adorable) 19 month old daughter to sleep.

A sound from outside permeates the room -- Thud.

Fresh Mommy: "What the--?"

Husband: "The motion lights are on outside." He pops out of bed and disappears.

Fresh Mommy: "We're being robbed!"

Fresh Mommy stares out the window -- will she catch this bold invader in the act?

And then a bear (note to casting director -- get the biggest bear you can get!) shuffles across the yard.

Husband returns, looking strangely...excited by all the excitement: "The bear was here! Did you see it? It knocked over the garbage can. Holy shit! Did you see it? It was huge. I should have studied it more. I should have taken a picture of it. Holy shit!"

Fresh Mommy (as she pulls the covers over her head): "Toto, I have a feeling we're not in Manhattan anymore."


End of Scene 1.

Nothing Screams country vs NY more...

First indication is the dark room...
Second indication would be the motion detectors,
Third indication that what wakes you is a bear and not a rat...

Glad to have visited you...
Looking forward to reading more...

Bah! That would scare me.

We had a midnight disturbance last night, but our conversation was more along the lines of: Me: "Do you think that was a gunshot?" Him: "Nah, just the neighbors lighting off fireworks." Ahhh. . . city living.

Love what you've written so far :)

There are many things I miss about Manhattan. The lack of wildlife is one of them. The ability to have decent verging on good food delivered to my door is another.
