  § Dramatis Personae Jan (f), 32, elder sister; Dan (m), 28, brother in the middle; Fiona (f), 25, younger sister.

  § Synopsis “Jan, Dan and Fiona prepare themselves to have breakfast with their father and his new wife. The problem is that dad dumped mom for this ‘Cherry Bimbo’ and the siblings aren’t  keen on eating bacon with her. Dan wants to get it over so he can go back to making money for his kids college education. Fiona wants nothing to do with it because her new mom is younger than she. On the other hand, Jan seems almost content about the prospect of a family breakfast. Dan pounces on this (Jan is supposedly the one who hates dad the most) and threatens to leave if Jan doesn’t spill the beans. Dan wants to be caustic about Dad and his new bride, and Jan’s ‘good girl’ attitude is spoiling his fun. Jan reluctantly reveals that she had an extramarital affair and can't throw stones, even if she does hate dad. She pleads with the others to go into the apartment with her. She needs them. This is something that Jan has never said before. The three siblings agree to go in to breakfast. They enter the apartment building united.
