If I had a lot more time I would write out the entire series of events that led to this series of events, but I just don’t. I wrote a bit of it and then realized I wasn’t going to have time enough to finish it & needed to work on other things with more pressing deadlines. Also anything I write will probably be less good than what you imagine brought them to this ridiculous situation.
I’m very sleepy at the moment. I think I’m going to see if I can fall asleep or not.
