Write something boring.  Something mundane.  Something uninteresting.  Really. 

Have them doing something mundane.  Something boring.  Something uninteresting.  Really.

Have the dialogue mundane.  Boring.  Uninteresting.  Really

Maybe they are washing dishes, maybe reading the paper, talking about the weather...but, they want something, desire something, are afraid of something....so it's all in the subtext, and peaches for the actors.

Maybe the weather, is really about sex, or the dishes is all about dying.  Use your imagination.

If you want, write the subtex in brackets.

Post under feedback in an individual thread.

Have fun!

Is it too late to do this? Sounds like great fun!
