(scene opens in brightly lit kitchen)
Husband: (preparing to cook dinner)
Carrot: (staying out of his way) I was reading this moderately alarming article about how Covid has tanked the birthrate. Add that to the Covid death rate, that’s a significant population drop. There’s going to be some massive demographic shifts fairly soon.
Husband: Now stop to think all the Millenials that can’t afford to buy houses and start families and that Gen Z isn’t going to be able to do that either.
Carrot: A faster and bigger drop. (thinks) Y’know – even though we have four kids, its very possible we won’t have any grandchildren.
Husband: (washing a dish) Oh, I don’t know about that. Alpha is good looking and prone to making bad decisions.
Carrot: (with adoration) Awww. Just like his father!
Husband: (turns, glares, kisses Carrot’s forehead) Nice.
Carrot: I know.
