(Our school is putting on a version of a well-known musical. We have also written extra scenes for it. This particular scene takes place in a dentist’s office, and features myself, a secretary, and another patient, who is supposed to be mute. We’re rehearsing.)

Me: “Hi, how are you?”

Patient: *grunts*

Me: “What?”

Patient: *grunts, makes frightened noises*

Me: “Sorry, I can’t understand you.”

Patient: *writes something down and gets ready to hand it to me*

Secretary: *snatches it* “I’ll read it. Oh, this is just talking about how wonderful Dr. [dentist] is!”

Me: “Is that what it actually said?”

Patient: “No. Oh–” *catches her mistake and starts laughing*
