Discussing the Issues
By Phyllis Naegeli
1 Jenny slammed down the remote. "AHH! I am so sick of this election. Now there's a debate interrupting my favorite program! Mom!"
2 Mom called from another room. "I'm in the kitchen."
3 Jenny got up and stomped into the kitchen. She stood in the doorway and tapped her foot. "When is this all going to be over?"
4 Mom turned from cutting up vegetables to face her daughter. "When is what going to be over?"
5 "All this election stuff! I can't take it anymore. Can I get a movie tonight?"
6 "No, you can't," said Mom emphatically. "Your father and I are going to watch the debate. You can watch it with us if you like."
7 "It will be so boring. All they do is argue over stuff like taxes. I just want life to go back to normal."
8 Mom raised her eyebrows. "Are you done with your temper tantrum?"
9 "I'm not having a temper tantrum! I'm just upset that my favorite program is going to be interrupted tonight."
10 Mom grinned. "Yes, it is. But I think you need to understand how important these election events are."
11 Jenny slumped down into a chair at the kitchen table. "It doesn't seem very important to me."
