75: basic worry

Why haven’t you clocked in?

I can’t remember my number.

Why can’t you remember your number?

I don’t know.

Crack.

Ow.

No good. Try again.

I don’t know. Um, maybe because I’m worried.

What are you worried about?

I don’t know.

Crack.

Ow. Okay. Okay. I’m worried about Ian.

Who’s Ian?

My housemate. I haven’t seen him since his birthday. He’s disappeared.

Okay. What else?

Um … Carol?

Who’s Carol?

Carol’s my ex-girlfriend. I just broke up with her. I don’t think she took it too well.

What else?

Nothing. That’s it.

Crack.

Ow.
Crack.

Ow.

Crack.

Ow. Stop. Stop. Please.

Okay, have you basically remembered your number yet?

No …

Crack.

Ow.

Crack.

Ow.

Crack.

Ow.
