Waiting In the living​ room, the grandmother sat in her usual chair. She looked down at her lap while one hand absently stroked the other. The mother pressed several​ men's shirts, one after the​ other, and hung them on hangers with more than the usual thump of her iron and clanking of the hangers. Every few minutes she glanced at the wall​ clock, with a worried twitch of her eyebrows.​ Davey, the​ 10-year-old, ran into the room and turned on the television. But the mother pushed past​ him, snapped it​ off, and gritted between her​ teeth, open double quote“You ​can't have that idiot box on ​tonight!close double quote” He opened his mouth in​ surprise, then turned and ran out. Once​ again, the iron​ thumped, the shirt hangers clanked. To the two​ women, the hands of the clock seemed to be paralyzed.
