This picture is my rough guess at the house layout for terrible Tina, sour Susan, and tepid Trent. This main room contains three rooms in one! It’s a kitchen, a dining room, and a living room! It’s the Swiss Army knife of rooms! Sadly, all the knives are stuck out and can’t be retracted. Realistically, you can’t get more than 5 feet away from someone in this space. This is important to note.
We’re 34 minutes into A Talking Cat!?! and it already feels like we’ve been watching it for years. Trent is sitting on the couch (see floor plan) watching TV (see floor plan) when Tina comes sauntering into the room. “Hey loser,” she greats him, unprovoked. Did I mention that Susan, their inattentive mother, is standing less than 5 feet away from them in the kitchen? She is.
Susan quickly steps in to stop the callousness of her loin droppings. Just kidding. Susan ignores her bickering children completely.
Tina, always full of advice, recommends her brother “stay dumb.” She then states, rather loudly, that she is “off to the library” to work on something “because I’m smart and you’re not.”
Enough is enough! Susan flies across the room to put a stop to this sibling squabbling! Haha, I got you again! Susan didn’t do that at all! Instead, Susan turns around and asks Trent if Tina went to the library. You see, because Susan was all the way in the kitchen and didn’t hear what Tina said less than 5 seconds ago. This kitchen that is less than 5 feet away from everything else in the house.
Out of character, Susan asks Trent if he is okay. I’m surprised Trent hears her because Susan is all the way behind the couch and Trent is on the couch. There must be miles between them. His hearing must be stellar.
And then Trent does what Trent does best. He pushes down his feelings and says he needs to go for a walk. Nice work, Trent. Don’t cry out loud. Keep it inside. Learn how to hide your feelings.
This is the second time Trent gets away from his mother with the old “gotta go for a walk” excuse. That is an excuse for someone in an unhappy marriage, not a teenager. There is a TV to be watched (see floor plan) and a couch to be sat on (see floor plan).
Next up? Trent talks to a talking cat. A talking cat!?!
