I’m sitting at a restaurant near my house, where I often go for lunch. It has a counter that runs alongside the kitchen, where you end up sitting beside people you don’t know. Sometimes I end up chatting with them.

This one time, there’s a guy who reveals in the course of the conversation that he’s just recently had a kid. Maybe his fifth or sixth? I don’t remember, but I remember he had a lot of kids.
