Odd Saying

:Scene Last Night:

Int: An ordinary - if overly beige - living room, just before bed time. Father is slouched on one couch and Mother is sprawled on another, both obviously exhausted. Two blurs are careening around the room, one is pink and has a high pitched sound emanating unceasingly while the other is slightly blue and drags a poor scrap of blanket behind it.

Pink Blur (aka: da Boo): Can't catch me! Can't catch me!

Blue Blur (aka: the Boy): Cat me! Cat me!

(This goes on for several minutes. Despite it being time for rest, the two blurs race around the lower level of the house, bare feet slapping on linoleum and carpet without hesitation.)

The Man: ...

Me: Do you think this is what they meant by 'hearing the pitter patter of little feet?'
