I walk backstage to start Act II. Awkward Dude is sitting in a chair. It's dark, so I know that someone's sitting there, but I can't tell who it is or what they are doing.
Hello, Awkward Dude.
"I was just making shadow puppets with my hands. You know, birds, stuff like that."
Um, great. I was just getting ready for the rest of the show.
"Well, that's what I was just doing. Making shadow puppets."
Great. I couldn't really see what you were doing there.
Aren't you going to miss him when I leave this place?
