Ummm...I have no idea where they are, do you?  They told me they'd be here around 7:30 or so and we looked everywhere, but I don't see them.  And they didn't leave a message or anything.  Have you heard from them?

Yeah, I know.  Neither have I.  And it's the weirdest thing, too, because that's all they were talking about all week -- how excited they were for this thing.  They were really amped.  

You know what? Let me take another lap, but if we don't see them soon I say we just get started without them.
