Today is Koppa's birthday, and he is celebrating it by sitting on his 9th floor balcony and putting the finishing touches on his customized fishing hooks. After diner, and a brief one-way conversation, Koppa reveals to the audience the nature of his anxiety; he hates milk, neighbors, wearing a tie and most of all, he hates his own inability to do anything about his future.
