” Can I ask you a question? ”
Sure, go ahead.
” Do you like questions? ”
Ummm. Well, I’ve never really thought about it. I mean – questions just are, if you get what I mean…
” Do you like rhetorical questions? ”
Ah, there I can say a definite No. They always seem such a contrivance. They tend to stop a conversation, rather than start it.
” I knew you would say that, didn’t I? ”
What? If you knew I would say that why did you ask in the first place?
“What would you say if I told you that if you hadn’t answered in the first place you wouldn’t have to ask, now would you? Can’t answer that, can you? ”
My head hurts. Go away.
