I wait. You arrive late. The next day you wait. I arrive late. If I left
you–walked in a straight line–I would eventually come back to you.
If you left me–and walked in a straight line–you would walk into
George’s front door across the street. I shut my eyes. If you shut your
eyes, it will be dark.
