Bob, do you talk to yourself?
Oh, I don't know. Not often. Sometimes, I guess. Depends on the moment and my mood.
So the answer is "yes?"
Well, no, not really, because I don't want people to think I'm psycho or anything. Is it OK to use that word? Psycho? It's not like "retard," which you're not allowed to say anymore, and I personally agree with that. But "psycho," that's an entirely different thing.
Bob. Shut up and answer the question: Yes or no?
Well, don't push me. I don't like to be pushed. I need time. In public? Never.
