It f---ing exhausts you! That's how it changes you! My buddy on the show is expecting a baby. I said, "Imagine I call you at midnight, and I hang up without saying anything. Then I call you two hours later, and I hang up again. This continues. Oh, and by the way, in between my calls, you're wondering if I'm dead." That's what it's like.
