I don't know if this is really the sort of thing guaranteed to spawn any elaborate change to my life, but at least it's a step in... a direction.
But we shouldn't fixate on the possibility that this could be a complete dead-end of a development from a storyline perspective. An unloaded Chekhov's Gun if you will, or perhaps an unintentional "Red Herring".
Or maybe Jake's going to shoot me in the face. Seriously, I have no idea, it's not even like I've known him for that long. Fuck, what am I doing? This could be a terrible idea!
