Here's the scene:
I'm sitting on the couch, trying like hell to get some work done. Master J is flitting from one area to the next playing.
Mirth (to myself): Okay, they want to offer $150,000 on this property in Sur...
Master J (also to himself): AHHHHHHH! (Commander Cody goes flying) Retreat! Retreat! Retreat!!!!!
Mirth: Holy crap Dude, settle it.
Master J: Sorry.
Mirth (back to myself): Now where was I? Let's see, that property is a bank owned and they're looking for highest and best by...
Master J (running through room with light saber): Pew! Pew! Pew! Swooooosh! AAAAAHHHHHH!!!!
Mirth: Not reacting, not reacting...
Master J rushes back in, does a beautifully executed tuck and roll coming up fighting and dodging his imaginary opponent.
Mirth: Okay, you're going to have to take that elsewhere, I'm trying to work here.
Master J: Sure thing Mom! (He fights his way out of the room)
Mirth: Okay, I need an As-Is Addendum and a...what the hell?
Master J is now making siren noises at the other end of the house. They are amazingly accurate and exceedingly loud.
Mirth (to myself): This is why I can't do anything. I don't have ADD, I have insanity running through the house. (To Master J) Is there any way you could settle down and play quietly down there? Maybe close the door or something?
Master J: Sure Mom! I'll just close the door.
Master J slams the door and commences his epic battle in his room. It is not noticeably quieter and he is now flinging himself into things in his room.
Mirth: Only four more days until school starts. I can make it four more days (twitch, twitch). Really, it's so close that I can cetai...
Master J (bursting into the room): Hey Mom! Mom! Izzy chewed off Captain Rex's legs! Bad Izzy! You shouldn't chew off his legs.
Mirth: Just pretend he was caught by mines.
Master J: What's that supposed to mean?
Mirth: That means you left Captain Rex on the floor and the dog decided he was "Mine". Don't leave your toys lying around.
Master J: Well that's not fair. She shouldn't eat my toys.
Mirth: Which part of "I'm working" are you not getting?
Master J: Oh yeah, sorry! (Captain Rex goes flying) AAAAHHHHHH! I'm hit! I'm not going to make it! AAAAHHHH!
Only four more days, only four more days...
