Trevvy, Still Thinking …

The scene is a father and four children seated around a cluttered, crumby, sticky breakfast table. The youngest, TREVOR, has only recently been awakened by DAD to eat breakfast. Trevor addresses his dad out of the blue.

TREVOR: When will I be at Mars?

DAD: When will you go to Mars? I dunno — maybe if you become an astronaut when you grow up, you’ll go to Mars someday. But people don’t usually go to Mars.

TREVOR: Maybe if I’m an alien, I’ll go to Mars.

DAD: (laughing) Maybe. But I don’t think you’re an alien. I’m pretty sure you’re a human.

TREVOR: But maybe I will … I saw an alien world. Aliens stay awake all night — and sleep during the day.
