New personal record: only cried for five minutes when my situation changed, instead of twenty-five years. (It's cool, someone just touched me on the shoulder and acknowledged my existence when I wasn't playing my drums. Totally normal.)
Yo, Luke, the Angela lady said you were here? Please tell me she wasn't pulling my leg. Which is now a thing that's physically possible to do.
Nice, deep, calm breaths.
Hi, I'm Alex. Somehow a lifer again.
