"I don't care if you can tell what I'm saying, but I guess I didn't ask if you could limit it to that."

Ah-huh. Into tiny windowless house?

"Uh huh. You talk, I talk, random passersby talk. You talk, I generate you a little list of vocab?"

"It would work better if you wrote it down probably. Very inconvenient that this mode of transit didn't let me bring notes. Or more clothes. I would have needed so many sheep." He mimes writing when he mentions it.

Permalink
"You are writing. Congratulations. Pretty lettering."
