A: You seem so stable and so together. I, on the other hand, have this swirling mass of chaos inside my head.
J.T.: [laughs] You act like your whole life is chaos, and it's not. You've got things pretty together. The chaos is inside your head.
A: I know! It's always been like that! I worry that you won't understand that or you won't want to be around it.
J.T.: I wouldn't be here if I didn't want to be around it. Maybe some of my stability will rub off on you and help balance you out.
A: Maybe some of my chaos will rub off on you.
J.T.: I don't think so. I'm not so easily swayed. But I'm not afraid. And I'm not running away.
