(scene opens in early morning dinning room, Husband and Carrot at the table)
Alpha: (wanders in, sleepy) I had some weird dreams.
Me: (sips coffee) Oh yeah? What were they about?
Alpha: (groggy) I was on a bus going some place. Me and my friends from school. And we were just going. And it was dark. And the ride just kept going and going and going. Like we were never going to get there…
Husband: (leans over, in stage whisper) I think he knows.
Me: (same whisper) Hush.
Alpha: (pauses uncertainly, then with determination) No. (stalks out of the room)
(Husband and Carrot laugh uproariously)
