This is me being a shallow person in the worst moment ever.'” 

“I was just shocked when Brittany told me, because when I first met her a few days ago, she was spunky and super bold and confident. And when I pulled her aside to talk to her tonight, she just broke down,” Matt responds.  

Sure, Jan

5: 06 PM:

Anna quickly recognizes Matt was mentioning her dispersing reports that Brittany was a companion. She looks stressed.
