Yeah, we’re on complete lockdown. So, even that little bit of recreation that we had, that chance to get outside, to get away from people, is now dead. Like, we’re just in here; look: (Powell ducks to show a cramped, crowded room).
— All day.
And, you know, guys is coughing, and just…it’s just no way to escape it, really. So if this is the last one you see me in, bruh, know that I love you, you know what I’m sayin’? Like, heh, not to sound like that, but s***! It’s real.
But, you know, I’ll call you later, man. We’ll talk about it; we’ll discuss some stuff.
