  • "I'm not feeling confident today."

    You said that yesterday...

    "And see how that went?"

    C'mon, you gotta have some faith!

    "Why? Why should I believe? I'm tired of being let down."

    What kind of way is that too live?

    "Practical. Rational."

    What fun is that? Why not shoot for the stars, the moon, aim high? You never will get anywhere if you don't aim!

    "Easy for you to say. You don't have to deal with this constant let down."

    Oh come on, let's go. Let's see what happens.

    "Alright under protest."

    That's the spirit! C'mon, pick up the pace!

    "Yeah, get to the disappointment quickly."

    Wow, you as uplifting as a wad of dog poop.

    "Why do you have to talk so much? Can't we do this on silence?"

    Silence, another winning strategy.

    "Okay we are almost there. I'm not holding my breath..."
  • Oh well, I guess you were right. How does it feel?

    "Familiar. Well, I guess we can do this tomorrow..."
