HOT AND GRUMPY IN BAGHDAD

.
Bashir, a young man, is getting a drink from the luke cool fridge in his family’s Baghdad apartment. He mutters, "It’s just too blasted hot to go out setting up IEDs today.”

(the TV and the lights blink and die, the whirr and gurgle of the air conditioner slowly ceases and we hear a door slam, then silence, followed by an explosion in the distance)
