This boy's name is Tyler. This is indoors because the seats are soft cushioned. They are at the birthday place, a building with play areas and a theater. During the day, they watched the movie in the small rental theater. He fell asleep watching the movie. He was having fun but just got really tired, so everyone at the birthday party went to the other room to play games and let him sleep.
He's happy and warm but tired. He's content – not hungry or cold, just good.
Other boys and two parents are at their friend's eighth birthday party. The boy is well-liked, not left out. His friends run without him. First, they played, then ate, then the movie. Now he's tired and is waiting for his mom to pick him up.
Tyler met his friends at school. I hear parents talking, some kids are talking as they are leaving – walking and talking. I smell kid sweat and popcorn, you know the smell.
The boy is faking he's asleep – he's upset with one of the kids at the party. They had a fight, and he's crabby. He wanted to get away from everyone. His lips are wet, which doesn't happen when someone is sleeping.
The boys were playing. One kid acted as if he was cooler than Tyler and sat by another friend. He was being bossy to Tyler, so Tyler wanted to get away from everyone and not fight. So, he's waiting with his eyes closed for his mom.
The birthday boy's parents will come to get him when his mom arrives.
He's not dreaming of anything. There was so much going on that he's just trying to rest and clear his mind. He's on overload; all he wants to do is decompress.
