Okay. I’ll admit it. Drama majors aren’t always that easy to understand. You’ll have to forgive us. We live in a world in which we’re regularly encouraged to pretend to be someone else, which is probably super unhealthy now that I think about it (Seriously, though–I’ve spoken in four different accents today.
