This is a long story I have to tell you. It could take years, decades, a lifetime.
People won’t listen when you have a story this long. They start talking over you. They leave in the middle of it.
They don’t understand; this story’s important. It has to be told.
I have to make sure you won’t interrupt. I have to make sure you won’t leave. I have to tell this story. It’s eating away at my insides and wants out.
So sit there, no sounds, get as comfortable as you can with those bindings.
This is a long story.
