A divorce from her unloving, bastard husband has seen a middle aged, sweet woman now single and looking for love. All the bar going and blind dates haven't worked, and she soon finds herself drinking a lot more often. Shes silly and happy when drunk, and right now, it seems the only time when shes alright anymore.
Her son is mature, self sufficient and loves her very much. He hates seeing her drown her sorrows like this.
One night, returning home very late and a total mess, he sets about taking the booze from her for tonight, getting a little more sober, getting her cleaned up and putting her to bed. He doesn't mind her drinking, but too much and too often is something else.
However, she makes it a big job for him, giggly and playfully resisting him and hindering him in all his efforts, always going for another drink and embarrassing him any way she can.
He's so caring and patient and loyal... thats the kind of man she wants. So... its obvious where this goes.
I could play either.
