Indie Rock Bedtime Story

I was out sick yesterday and this is how I made use of my time. All the dialogue is indie rock song titles. It helps if you imagine both characters are foreign.

"No More Workhorse Blues" by Trousermouse (Palace)

Fade in.

Little Girl: Mister, would you please help my pony? (Ween)

Man: Sick? (Echo & The Bunnymen)
