Doing x means not doing y. And if y seems to be the better option by those around you, what excuse do you have, or rather do you give, to do x instead? That was the question that prompted today’s scene work.
Randy already had plans with Ken; I decided with today’s writing that those plans involved Ken’s telescope and a perfectly aligned Mercury. Randy is cancelling Ken y so he can do Donnie x, with reasons that actually make x into more of a y; but Randy can’t give those reasons to Ken, as least not yet.
