Future Thorn (thinking): I’m in an actual Hedge & Grassie studio. During a recording session. This is definitely not where — or when — I was trying to end up.
Hedge: Hey, you . . . scary fellow. Haven’t seen you around before.
Thorn: Oh — I’m new. New at the studio, I mean. I’ve been working security jobs for a while.
In fact . . . you could say I’ve been doing it since before I was born.
Hedge: You aren’t by any chance related to my wife, are you?
Thorn: Not as far as I know, no.
