True Stories

A robot rolls into a crater on Mars and a host of brilliant, well paid scientists watch it from a hundred million miles away, desperate and worried that it might slip and hurt itself. Meanwhile, a husband and wife ask their 10 year old daughter to watch her baby sister, 2, while they walk down the street to smoke crack cocaine. The robot is fine, and provides loads of information on the history of a planet that isn’t Earth. The 2 year old drinks anti-freeze which had been put in a Slush Puppy jug and stuffed into a closet while her 10 year old sister smokes a joint upstairs that her boyfriend had brought over minutes after the parents left.

But at least the robot is alright.
