    Ok - you raised me a sausage, so...

    Minnie: Come on boy, beg for your supper. Up, up, sit up, sit up. Put this sausage on your nose. There, there's a clever boy.
    Henry: Minnie.
    Minnie: What?
    Henry: I'm fed up having my breakfast like this.

    Sir Humphrey: Unfortunately, although the answer was indeed clear, simple, and straightforward, there is some difficulty in justifiably assigning to it the fourth of the epithets you applied to the statement, inasmuch as the precise correlation between the information you communicated and the facts, insofar as they can be determined and demonstrated, is such as to cause epistemological problems, of sufficient magnitude as to lay upon the logical and semantic resources of the English language a heavier burden than they can reasonably be expected to bear.

    Breathe and remember that you've been in this place before. you've been this uncomfortable and anxious and scared, and you've survived. Breathe and know that you'll survive this too. These feelings can't break you. They're painful and debilitating, but you can sit with them and eventually they'll pass. Maybe not immediately, but sometime soon, they are going to fade, and when they do, you'll look back at his moment and laugh fir having doubted your resilience. I know it feels unbearable right now, but keep breathing, again and again. This will pass, I promise it will pass.
