Um...I...no. Not really.

What the hell is gonna happen?
Look, I know. It all sounds scary, but it's really not that bad. You know, for you. Right. I mean, for some people, it's...it's not. But for you, it's really not bad. Um...I would... You know, would you rather be in a busy shopping mall or at home on the couch watching Netflix?
