Deadline looms.

I'll never leave it this late again.

Seconds tick away; tiny drops of blood from time killed.

Try something else. What about that idea that you had earlier?

Remember? You know, the one about... No, that won't do. What else?

Aaron finished this weeks ago. You could have been out with him right now. Wait, is Aaron spelled with two A's or one?

Come on, focus. You can do this. How about this... yes, this whole part sounds perfect - then talk about... Yes, this is excellent! Just another...

Typical! Of all the times to call, why now? I told her I was busy; what could be so important? She had better be sick or dying or she'll never hear the end of this.

I'll be right back.
