Scene: Dee is coloring with her new set of 50 crayola markers. As she finishes with a color, she shoves it all willy-nilly back into the package. I am idly tidying the markers back into their individual plastic slots.

DEE: Mommy, what are you doing?

MOMMY (absentmindedly): Oh, don't worry, sweetie. Mommy's just being anal.

DEE: That's okay, Mommy. You're just a little bit anal.

MOMMY: Thank you, dear.
