Why is the sky blue? Why is water wet? Why did Judas rat to the Romans while Jesus slept? Why is Ghostface so dope?

Where do we go from here? How long will it last? Is it over yet? Says who? Why should I listen to you? Who could possibly make sense of this? Why do birds suddenly appear every time you are near? Do you get it? How many times must we go over this? Are you for real? Are you stupid or something? How have you survived this long? What are your plans for the future?

Who the fuck is that? How fine is she? What’s she doing here? You know her? Does she know you? Should I get to know her? Do I introduce myself or are you going to do it for me? How are you? What’s your name? Do you have a boyfriend/husband? Do you want one? How about kids? Oh you already have them? How many? Do they all have the same dad? Jesus, how many people have you slept with? Why should I be sorry?

Who is this? How did you get this number? Why are you calling me? What do you want? Well, who’s over there? What are you guys doin’? Should I come over? Do I need to bring anything? Wait”¦ Where are you? How do I get there? Who’s gonna be there? When I come over? There?
