Everything’s gotten much easier because I’ve learned to be able to sleep on one side, and I can just lay and be in one position, and I don’t have to turn.  Right, so the durability of my body has gotten better.  What else—just being in public has gotten much easier over time, I don’t even think about it any more.  Even dealing, like, with little kids, and families that are, “Woo,” and I’m actually just like, “Hey.”  If I’m the first time they’ve seen a guy in a chair, I want to be a good representation of that.  Kind of like the first time a kid sees a big dog, the dog bites him, and he never likes dogs anymore.  Like, I don’t want to be that dog, right.  So that’s gotten easier.  I think working has gotten easier, basically pretty much everything—it just takes time to learn.
