[She can tell he's smoking, and she listens a little bit. She likes listening, and she likes it when he sounds dry like that, because Si always sounds dry when he's teasing. She laughs a little bit.] I could pull off walking into the lake! I'd make sure it was a clear night, one with lots of stars and a big fat moon. "There was a star riding through clouds one night, & I said to the star, 'Consume me'." [Because Virginia was really, really dramatic, and she can imagine him rolling his eyes. But she shakes her head.] I've been dead. I don't want to be dead again. [She doesn't have to think even a moment.] Six months. I know. That's great, Si. And this is just a bump. It's not a fall. You going back in, that's like tripping and standing straight again.
