This is the lifestyle I look forward to in part a t least for a while, 
probably not forever surely, at some point I hope to begin great 
adventures but will likely act quite freely throughout them. If Kass and 
Co. don't like it they can die and not do it but they should shut up 
about whether I/we can or should. Kass is neither my brother nor my keeper.
