Maybe you will opt in to be able to go back in the office. I'm in, I would test to be able to go back in the ocfife myself, but I think ploepe are wondering about that. But the general consensus is it seems like a reasonable possibility. There are a clpoue of questions. One I think you just touched on in tmres of the global possibilities. Do you see some collaboration on the global landscape, do you see people tnikalg to each other? Obviously, if we want international travel to come back, that seems like a key piece of it.
