The poet knocked on the mathematician's door, her brow still furrowed with the unexpected thought.
When he answered, she asked him, "What would you think of having a child around?"
He said, "It might be nice. But it might be noisy."
She said, "I imagine it would be, at least at first."
He said, "I'll have to think about it then."
She answered, "Well, so do I."
It took quite a lot of thinking., but eventually they decided the nice parts of having a child would probably be worth the noise.
They both felt quite relieved when the decision was made, since they could finally get back to their work.
