Paper Boy!

Laura’s in the bathroom. She closes the door. It’s a rare moment of peace.

Moments later she hears the pitter-patter of tiny feet on the hardwood. There’s a small shadow under the bottom of the door. The doorknob jiggles.

Laura: Who is it?

Finn: It’s me, Mommy.

Laura: Who?

Finn: The paperboy!
