This is just before. It's coming. You can see it in my eyes. Also, I'm being roundly ignored by James and Adrianne, sitting next to me. That didn't help.
I'm talking to my cousin, Nat, at this point, but I'm failing fast.
Only a moment later I laid my head down on the armrest of that couch and fell, if not fast, most certainly, asleep.
p.s. Now that I'm looking at that sweater, I'm not sure it's as flattering as I had told myself it was. I think it's better when I'm standing.
