Okay, here we are.  You ready?

As I’ll ever be.

 

First of all, I’d like to thank you for accommodating me.  My schedule’s been pretty crazy lately, so I appreciate you shuffling your calendar to meet with me today.  These days, I don’t know if I’m coming or going.

That’s no problem.  —Hey, are you taping this?

 

Yeah.  Is that a problem?

I guess not.
