Was It Then

Before we begin let me just.
If you give me a moment I could.
Let’s turn to the thing we said.
No it was after that.
Yes, really. Was there only.
We had it for a second there.
I wasn’t going to. Oh I see.
Yes there might have been.
You mean you haven’t seen.
Oh it was long ago.
No it was after that.
You mean to tell me.
It escaped my frame of reference.
And I wanted to say.
Is this coming to a question.
How do you know. That’s right.
You’ve said that already.
Yes. We’ve established that.
No it was after that.
What do you mean.
