(scene opens in dim basement, Carrot surrounded by laundry baskets)
Me: (sorting t-shirts, stops looks around) Are you still smelling B.O?
Husband: (looks up from computer) I put a load through earlier because it was smelling.
Me: Yeah, I just took that out of the dryer. (sniffs article of clothing, drops it) Jebuz!
Husband: (gets up to look at basket) Did some dirties get in with the clean?
Me: I don’t think so. (Husband and Carrot proceed to sort boy clothes based on smell) Some of them don’t smell at all. How did so much stank get through the wash?
Husband: (turns to stairway, lets out a battlefield yell) BETA!
(Beta hurries downstairs into scene)
Husband: Explain to me your washing process.
Beta: (shrugs) Take the clothes, put them in the machine, close the door, push the button.
(moment of silence)
Me: And when do you put in the laundry pod?
Beta: (tries to affect confusion, fails) What laundry pod?
Husband: Holy god you’ve been washing your clothes without detergent all this time? (points at stank basket) Take these back to the laundry room, I will show you what laundry detergent looks like.
