  • oxygen and depending how much oxygen they are getting, to respond appropriately by turning

  • When I was younger, my late wife and I would you know sort of have fun together and talk about what would be like,

  • what would happen, what would it be like if you ever won this prize?

  • To be honest, there were a couple of years after I lost her, that I thought, "Please, not

  • But I'm at a point now that I'd like to think she is smiling down, and nodding and saying

  • “I told you! I told you this was going to happen."

  • Crowd: Laughs

Kaelin: Uh, I hope you're all having a nice day,
