GT: i've missed the heck out of him. GT: though i'm not sure why. he should be safe at home right now. GT: i guess i must have lost track of him. but i don't remember how. GT: all i know is i have this feeling like i should run over and give him a hug. AG: Well, just so you know, he is pro8a8ly not actually there. AG: Kind of like how my lusus was just a memory. GT: are you a psychic alien? like the one who jodie foster met in contact, and assumed the form of her dead father to talk to her? AG: As a matter of fact, yes, I am a psychic alien. 8ut that has nothing to do with this! AG: These are our memories, and we are in the afterlife. I keep trying to tell you, and it's starting to get frustr8ing. GT: i see. so it is not me who is jodie foster. it's more like you are jodie, because nobody believed her when she came home and had amazing tales to tell. GT: except matthew mcconaughey. AG: Aaaaaaaargh! GT: but it's ok. i will be your matt mcconaughey. AG: Does that mean you'll 8elieve me now? GT: i guess i always did, sort of. GT: i think i've been in denial about what's happening here. AG: It's nice that you 8elieve me. 8ut that doesn't mean you remem8er yet. GT: so if this isn't my dad, then where is he? AG: He died too. You saw his 8ody. Don't you at least remem8er that? GT: no. not at all. GT: i am remembering a bunch of things, but not that. AG: Then what? AG: Do you remem8er me yet? GT: no. GT: i only remember when you contacted me and said you'd kill me a little earlier. GT: but that was months ago. GT: i do remember talking to some other trolls like you. GT: and playing this game. it was on my 13th birthday. i was really looking forward to playing it, but it was late in the mail. GT: i got some presents from my dad. like this big weird clown doll that i didn't like much. GT: and some fruit gushers... GT: oh yeah! i also realized gushers were made by betty crocker. that freaked me the fuck out! GT: did YOU realize betty crocker makes gushers??? AG: This comes as news to me. GT: well she does. her villainy knows no bounds. GT: oh. GT: he also gave me this suit, which i remember wearing for a while. GT: but it didn't look quite like this. GT: it had a black tie, and no ghost, so i improved it. GT: actually... GT: i remember dying in a suit. AG: You do? GT: but GT: this was not the suit i was wearing when i died.
