(scene opens in dreary rainy dinning room. Carrot enters from kitchen, drops keys on table, hangs wet jacket on chair. Picks up lukewarm coffee. Taps laptop. AWOLNATION’s “Burn it Down” plays way too loud.)
Carrot: (sits, sighs, puts coffee mug to forehead)
Carrot: Damnit. (turns off music, picks up phone) Hello?
Phone Voice: (anxious) Good morning, Ms Carrot. This is Gamma’s teacher. We had a close contact situation this morning and sending everyone home.
Carrot: (struggles to English) Sending everyone in the classroom home or sending everyone in the school home?
Phone Voice: Everyone who had close contact.
Carrot: (processes) Oh. Well. I suppose it’s a good thing she had her first vaccine shot last night. Grabbing my keys, be there in ten.
Phone Voice: (grateful) Thank you so much, Ms. Carrot.
(Carrot hangs up phone, puts down coffee, picks up keys, leaves jacket, exits through kitchen)
