Sfx: water dripping from a just extinguished fire, police radios, debris being shifted all in background. Quick responses, slightly overlapping.

Officer: (soothing voice) Ma’am, just tell me what happened …

Woman: (Very shaken) It was all so sudden. Hal and I were sitting here watching the TV, and (screams next word, officer jumps, crash in background) BAM! A rock comes through the window.

Officer: Where’s this rock now?

Woman: I suppose it’s behind the couch – it broke the window but didn’t get past my wood blinds (with pride) aren’t the lovely. They’re Graber blinds from the House of Blinds.

Officer: (patronizing) Graber Blinds you say?

Woman: (bragging / gossiping) From the House of Blinds. I find House of Blinds is value and durability – I mean these (sfx: shaking/rattling blinds. Maybe knocking on them) stopped a rock.

Officer: (redirecting) And how did the fire start?

Woman: (sheepishly) I suppose, in the commotion, I knocked the scented candle from the coffee table, the rug went in a flash, and Hal took off screaming like a girl

Officer: (startled) excuse me?

Woman: When his shirt caught fire...Then I tackled him. Stop, drop and roll you know.

Officer: (exasperated) Yes Ma’am. Stop, drop and roll.
