INT. KITCHEN - DAY


JOANN and GRANDMA sit at the kitchen table. They are both tense.


JOANN

Can I get you some coffee?


GRANDMA

No.


JOANN

Okay.

(sighs)

Tea?


GRANDMA

No.


JOANN rubs her eyes.

JOANN

I can’t stay here all day grandma, I have work at 11.


GRANDMA grumbles. They sit in silence again.


JOANN

Did you eat today?


GRANDMA

No.


JOANN

Okay, maybe you need some food.


GRANDMA

No.


JOANN

Maybe some mac and cheese?


GRANDMA

NO!


JOANN

I don’t know what you want. Why did you call me over?


GRANDMA mumbles.


JOANN

I can’t hear you, gram.


GRANDMA mumbles some more.


JOANN

Do you need help taking a bath?


GRANDMA

No.


JOANN

How about a cup of coffee, Gram. It might help you.


GRANDMA

I’M READY TO DIE!


Big pause.


JOANN

Right now?


GRANDMA

Yes.


JOANN

Gram, I got work at 11.


GRANDMA

NOW!


JOANN

NO!


Beat. GRANDMA mumbles.


JOANN

What?


Grandma mumbles.


JOANN

GRAM! I can’t hear you!


GRANDMA

After work?


Pause.


JOANN

Yeah, okay. Be ready.


GRANDMA

cool.


JOANN

(grabbing her purse)

Mhm.


JOANN gets up to leave and opens the door.


JOANN

I better be in the will!


JOANN leaves. GRANDMA sits at the table.


GRANDMA

Never.


END.
