Slice of Life


INT. JO'S CAR - DAY

We pull up to a red-light. Outside the passenger window is a small, church-owned graveyard. Snow is covering some of the graves.

JO
 (THOUGHFUL) What would you tell a child if they asked you if the people in the ground were cold?

TONY 
I would say 'of course not. The worms ate them a long time ago.'

JO
(THAT ONE EYE-BROW RAISED LOOK) 
That's what you would tell a child?

TONY 
I mean--I would say the coffins were very well insulated so the corp--people were warm.

JO
I would tell a child the people were in heaven where God has warm blanket for everyone.

TONY
Which is why I write horror and you don't.
