My father was a good-looking kid. Strong. That helped. But good-looking helped more. Shouldn't matter but does. I was good-looking too. Once. Helped. She's good-looking. Hope it helps. Shouldn't matter but. Always brush your teeth. Always comb your hair. Change your bloody underwar cuz you jest can never know.

Got her nose in her machine. Better scenery. Doesn’t get carsick. Doesn’t look out window. If she listens to her pappy, good people, she won’t know up from down. When she gets to the bottom, she’ll go back to the top of the slide. But when she gets to the bottom then, will she see me again?

But what does it matter? What does matter matter?
