Storyboard Text

  • You would think this would just be a simple story, about a simple housewife living a simple life with her simple husband. She sits in her chair, waiting for her husband to arrive home from work as usual. There’s a sense of tranquility, the way this story unfolds.
  • I wonder what he's going to say about work this time...
  •  The husband comes in, his wife fixes him a drink right as he sits down. All seems to be fine… But there’s more to this story than you’d think.
  • Hello, darling.
  • Hello, dear.
  • No...
  • The husband announces that he must tell her something out of the silence. He says that he is involved in an affair, and that he has decided to leave his wife for this other woman. He says that she must keep this a secret, for it would make him look bad if anyone else knew since the couple was expecting. The people at his work could especially not know.
  • I have decided to leave you.
  • As expected, the wife’s response was that of shock and denial. She thought it would change things if she made supper.
  • You don't need to.
  • I guess I will make that lamb leg for supper.
  • She retrieved a frozen leg of lamb from the freezer and brought it in.  But alas, she could not control her emotions any longer. She clubbed her husband over the head with the lamb leg.  
  • OOF!
  • The husband fell, instantly dead from the blow. The wife cried out with regret, not knowing what she would do now.
