Hey back!
What do you do for a living?
I’m a mental health specialist.
Cool. How many patients have you treated so far?
Millions, no thousands. I’ve lost count.
When did you start your practice?
Hmmm. Nine lives ago.
Amazing. Do you ever get tired?
No. I like to manifest myself in all my glory.
Well. What’s so special about you?
Good looks, good…
