Well, this is a bit out of order. Technically Carter should have been next, but he was watching a movie when I wanted to do the interview. Also, and this is really funny, Kaylee’s big tow just got caught in Lydia’s hair. It is completely off topic, but it’s hilarious and was a point in favor of getting them in to the bathroom to wash and CONDITION their hair.

That’s a good point.
I think we should kick her out
Of the family?
no just out of the room
