Scene: In the kitchen, before bed. A mother is dispensing a Benadryl capsule to her allergy-ridden 10-year-old son. Son speaks first.
"When I'm 12, I'll take it without water. Or maybe when I'm 15."
"But honey, you don't have to take it without water. I don't take pills without water."
"But Dad does. He can swallow a whole handful of pills without water."
"Well, I don't do that."
"I guess there are just some things men do better than women."
