On the counter, there are now BAGS OF GROCERIES and a closed
CARDBOARD BOX with a POST-IT NOTE on it. Conor reads it,
Opens the groceries. They’re FULL OF MEDICINAL-LOOKING HEALTH
FOOD. Conor makes a face.
Conor prepares himself breakfast. The toast is burnt. Conor
scratches the burnt stuff off with a knife. The black dust
falls on the white plate. He makes a couple of strokes on the
dust with his finger and creates a drawing.

Conor throws away his leftovers (there’s a lot he didn’t

there for a moment absentminded staring out the window.

CONOR’S MUM leans against the kitchen counter with a cup of

You’ve had breakfast?
She gives him a look. She may be ill, but she’s still Mum.
Toast, cereal and juice.
