Can you move

Me to Joe, after a glass of wine on a fairly empty stomach, while watching his tiny body move, which is both tiny but also big:

‘Joe, I grew you in my body, isn’t that crazy? My body grew your entire body. (Tears come.) You used to be inside of me, you were so tiny, but then you grew and grew, my body made you, man. Isn’t that amazing?’

Joe: …can you move?

Me: What?

Joe: you’re in my way.

Me: oh
