A boy is crying in an airport. "Don't you love me?" he whimpers. To which his parents dearly console, "of course we do son, of course we do." The sniffling boy takes a beat, "then why do you keep taking me to the circus?"
This was a real line from a real boy in a real airport. Which goes to show creativity is everywhere. In addition to stealing quips from children I'm also an avid ocean kayaker and watcher of bad horror movies. Here's a million dollar genre idea Netflix should tap – Child Drama.
