Oh hi sorry, I didn’t recognize you. Usually you’re wearing that big-that uh-your face is-I’m sorry. Usually you look different. Are you okay? I mean, am I allowed to ask that? What I mean is, is it up to me to ask that? I don’t know if I should know to ask you to know not to or if I should or shouldn’t ask you if it’s okay to ask you how you are. There are a lot of rules here muddied in this-space between us-the uh-sorry-the space between what used to be okay and not okay. I think you fall under that category. I mean, you used to be okay. Seem okay, I’m sorry. I don’t know how to call you. Maybe you never liked that distinction? I don’t know if you like being called anything at all so that’s why I don’t know if I should ask you if you’re anything when you’re different from what you were before because maybe you were never that either and I just don’t know how to know you. I don’t know how to know if you want to be known at all.
