The Script For Today's Comic!
Tom and Karla are in the living room, but it is filthy and has not been cleaned in days. Tom is at the laptop, working hard.
KARLA (irritated, but not furious): Tom, itís been days since the house was cleaned! Look at this rug!
TOM: Iím sorry. When did I become the maid?
KARLA: But you work at home!
TOM: And when I work at home, I never stop working. Iím always scrambling for new clients, answering emails, retouching photos.
TOM (firmly): I work eighty-hour weeks on this couch trying to get this business off the ground. I am not the home cleaning service as well.
(Karla understands this. This is a conversation that Gini and I have had several times, so while itís intense, the actual nature of ďargumentĒ no longer applies.)
KARLA: Well, maybe we should hire a maid, then.
KARLA: Itís surprisingly cheap Ė like $120 a month. And we wouldnít argue about the house any more.
TOM (earnestly, a little worried): But punk rockers donít have maids.
KARLA: Youíve sold out, sweetie. Next week comes the spats and monocle-fitting.
