@sonya That sounds exhilarating and a little bit bewildering, just like good PR!

@sonya Wow, that'd be something to see. A whole new way to impersonate people. It reminds me of that episode of Black Mirror where the guy dies and his partner is offered a virtual replacement.

@sonya How do I become that version of me, so that I actually feel like I deserve my wife?

Uh -- asking for a friend. Yes. That. O_O
