I am sitting with a woman--I don't recognize her. She is blond with long legs that are touching my legs and maybe even implicated with them. I have just given her some cassettes. I think I am explaining to her that they are damaged and I recall clearly that the tapes seems to have gotten wet, swelled up and cracked the plastic housings. They were dry now but the damage remained and the tape could be seen hanging out and in some cases seemed to have morphed into different textures and in others the strands had doubled or split into several layers. The woman did not seems dismayed by this deterioration. She said she was a secretary and was used to giving and taking orders. Finis.
