I pulled into the driveway where Kubtoa lives at 5:50 AM. I called him. Then I sent a text.
The MUST LEAVE by time was 6:00 AM. I set my alarm for 6:01 AM.
When it went off, I turned off my phone and drove home.
I have no idea what is going on in Kubota's head. It would be speculation on my part to supply reasons.
