    But I don't get it.

    Was it good?

    Yes.

    Would you recommend it?

    I don't know.

    How does that work?

    Why?

    Then what's the issue?

    I don't know.

    For fuck's sake.

    I don't understand it. It confused me.

    Just your plebian mind.

    Fuck you.

    Fuck you.…
