Time: Dinner.
Place: Ours.
Meal: Chicken and rice.
You?: Beautiful.

Scene I: The little one who’s not so little self-feeds and ketchup attaches to her left cheek. Our first protagonist (you) uses the bib of the little one who’s not so little to tenderly remove the ketchup.

Scene II: The second protagonist (me) self-feeds, and in his haste, chicken attaches to his left cheek. Our first protagonist uses her own napkin to tenderly remove the chicken.

Scene III (finale): The second protagonist ever grateful for the first protagonist’s continued gentle care clumsily writes this play to say I love you.
