"I have to mail the damn Amex bill, that's why!"
"Well, hurry up!"
As Frank scraped the minivan's tires along the slick curb, Ellen unhooked her belt and reached back to the baby seat where Lilly shrieked deafeningly. Sam, strapped into his booster next to her, covered his ears and wailed "QUIET! QUIET! QUIET! QUIET!"
"Both of you shut up or God help me I'll spank both of you when we get home!" bellowed Frank.
"Just great! That really helps, Frank! Thank you for being such an understanding father."
Ellen didn't hear Frank's obscenity, carefully timed with the door slam.
