Voice Response [ A quick an excited breath bites back the desire to dive into a ramble ] That is awesome. I mean, I'm not so sure how I'd do as a dinosaur, but I will absolutely take a demonstration. I'll trade you one. Or give you a Spider's eye view of the place. Not the actual Spider but like, well, I'll show you. When this is over. It probably won't be as exciting for a guy who can turn into a dinosaur, but it could be fun?
And lately? Like you've got a history or do you mean since landing here?
[ Another breath, this one to pull her back on track ]
This is not a sign of useless. I mean, okay, it's not the sunshine and rainbow story we'd like to have, but, sometimes those don't happen. I learned a long time ago that what really counts is how hard you work to make a go of it when you have the chance. My parents sure did mess up and, you know, kids do too. It's kind of the nature of the relationship. Besides, who knows, maybe the two of you getting to see dinosaurs and eat pizza is just what you need for the bonding and making up for lost time.
Heck, my Dad and I have made a go of it and he's from a version of reality where I never even got a chance to be born. He didn't even know me until I was an adult. I'll totally vouch for the fact that your first response too was to panic and go looking for her, and to battle all the doors that might have been between you two. I feel like these things will earn lots of points.
