  4. I’m sorry.
  5. Do you want to hold my hand until you realize you don’t want to anymore and then let go of it until next Tuesday?
  6. Do you want me to dial your mother for you?
  7. Do you want me to dial God for you?
  8. I’m sorry.
  9. Cream?
  10. Sugar?
  11. I’m sorry.
  12. I know it’s not your birthday but I’m glad that you have one.
  13. I’m sorry.
