WE COULD EASILY POWER MOST OF NEW YORK OFF WHAT YOU’RE FEELING RIGHT NOW, AND THIS ISN’T EVEN MY PINSTRIPE BOW TIE.
PAUL, WAKE UP.
YOU’RE DOING THAT THING AGAIN, WITH THE CRYING AND THE HAND MOTIONS. IT LOOKS LIKE YOU’RE TYPING AND FILING. I KNOW YOU’VE BEEN PUTTING IN A LOT OF OVERTIME BECAUSE YOU’RE AFRAID OF BEING LAID OFF, BUT I HONESTLY THINK YOU’RE HAVING NIGHTMARES WHERE YOU’RE JUST WORKING AT YOUR JOB.
IN YOUR SLEEP.
YOU NEED A BREAK, PAUL. THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS JOB SECURITY ANYMORE. IT ISN’T WORTH THIS.
SHHHHHHH. YOU’RE STILL CRYING. JUST BREATHE.
