“What’s it like? Being you, I mean. What’s it…like?”


Pause


“What’s it like being me?”


“Yes.”


“I don’t quite understand the question.”


“Don’t you?”


“No.”


“Shame.”


“Well, how could I possibly answer a question like that?”


“It was meant for you. Not for me to assess. Just, for you. (Pause) I have a knife, you know.”


“I didn’t, no.”


“You didn’t know?”


“No.”

“(laughing) What a funny comment. (Pause) Come on, they don’t just like you now, do they. Fucking love you, they do. Shower you in praises, your biggest fans.”

“How do you feel?”

“Good. A little nervous granted.”

“Of course.”

“But good. Yeah. I feel ready.”

“That’s great. Honestly. I’m so happy to hear that.”

“I just…”
