Are You Proud Of Yourself?

Go ahead.
Here's your opportunity.
You've been waiting to embarrass me publicly...
For years.
Haven't you?
Well...
You go ahead.
Make a fool of yourself!

And keep this in mind...
Dishonesty will eventually,
Come and bite you back...
When you least expect it!
So say anything about me you wish.
I could care less!

'All I was going to say is that I think,
You are a fantastic, considerate...
And a loving human being.'

NOW you want to be honest.
Truthful and sincere!
I don't get you at all!

Who put you up to this?
Who told you to say those things...
And I would show every tooth in my head!
Well...
It worked!
Are you proud of yourself?
Are you happy now?
