Henryisms,  Life as an Anthoine


Scene: Saturday night, master bathroom. Henry’s in the shower. Mom (me) is flat-ironing her hair.

Henry: Where are you going?

Mom: Date night. I gotta look pretty.

Henry: Are you going out with a boy other than Dad?

Mom: (shocked and trying not to giggle) No baby, I’m going out with your dad. He would be mad if I went out with another boy. Just like I would be mad if he went out on a date with another girl.

Henry: But he does go out on dates.

Mom: Really? How do you know?

Henry: Because I’m his wingman.

Mom: What does that mean? And are you for real?

Henry: It means I’m in charge of him. And no, I’m just kidding. But I am his wingman.

End scene.
