Christian and I used to be huge fans of Reno 911. So really, this conversation was the natural progression of things.
Scene: The grocery store. Passing the bakery to be exact. And the cakes, oh, the delectable cakes.
The players: Mom (played by myself, looking refreshed and young, as always); three inquisitive children (played by my kids, likely still in their pajamas); and some goldfish (played by the Improv Goldfish Cracker Group of America)
Claire: MOMMY LOOK! SOME CAKES!
Mom: Must you talk in all caps?
Claire: IS IT SOMEONE’S BIRTHDAY? IS IT THAT LADY’S BIRTHDAY? MOMMY! MOMMY! IS IT THAT LADY’S BIRTHDAY???
Rachel: IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!
Zoe: EEEES MAH BAHLGRKDDAAAAY!
Mom: Well, I’m sure it’s someone’s birthday, somewhere…
Claire: Whose birthday is it?
Mom: I don’t know, whose birthday is it?
Claire: Suge Knight’s birthday!
See video and editor’s notes below and file this one under Proud Mommy Moments.
Editor’s (that’s me) note: As a little backstory to the scene, Lt Dangle and Deputy Travis Jr have just answered a noise complaint at a mansion that happens to be the home of hip hop mogul Suge Knight. They find themselves in a little hot water and try to play themselves off as a strip-o-gram.
Editor’s (still me!) note again: This video sucks. It’s someone taking a video of their TV. If you want to watch a much better version that I couldn’t embed, go here.
