'Sore throat' seems to've been sufficient explanation for why John hasn't been doing a lot of talking lately, though he thinks that Liz gave him a weird look. Then again, she seemed to be accustomed to giving him weird looks. Not for the first time, John seriously wonders about the life of John Allerdyce hitherto suddenly not being able to remember anything.
Also not for the first time, he considers the possibility that he isn't actually John Allerdyce, and has just somehow been inserted into the poor guy's life.
In any case, it's been enough days that if he says anything now, it's going to be really weird. And even if he doesn't know the people he's staying with very well, he's observed the silent smoking sessions on the porch and can only envision the fiasco of admitting he can't remember anything:"Liz?"
"I -- uh, I can't remember who I used to be."
Cue violins and angstophone. ... No. No, he'll just figure this out on his own, fix it, and hopefully they won't have noticed anything. Sometimes he remembers things, although they're not useful. For instance, he'd suddenly remembered that he'd had the book on Indian mythology checked out for three months. Why the hell he'd wanted anything to do with Indian mythology is beyond him, but he did manage to return it.
According to his ... journal? ... he seemed to have had some fixation on Agni, the fire god.
Below the last set of notes, he writes:
Liz: brown hair, yellow (!) eyes, smokes a lot, depressed
Henry: brown hair, hazel eyes, really mild-mannered (is secretly Superman?)
Warren: black hair, brown eyes, weird, dating a "JP" and/or a "Peter", not actually brother ???
Helena: black hair, brown eyes, I think the word is "spunky", really hard to say no to
As in, "no, I might be sick, don't come over". He's pretty sure she's the one most likely to figure out he's completely confused about his family situation here, and, well, he's a little afraid of that coming out so soon. Henry's mentioned the Bureau to him a few times, and he knows where it is; some digging around on the government website gave him a scant amount more of information, but John is thinking they could possibly help him. They seem to deal with strange things like that. And why the fuck he wanted to work for them is just another mystery he'll have to figure out.
