    Old Girl, you’re on your way back, if you ever left.

    I’m trying to control the universe as best I can, but I think I’m failing at it. It might be time for me to step aside and let you take over -- I hear you laughing! -- but I’m not sure I know how to do that, seeing as I’ve been doing this for so long.

    “So, please be patient with me and don’t smite me with boils or ugly hair.
