Day 1:"It's all right if they lie to their wives, but not if they lie to you?"
Day 2:As a child, she used to love the small soaps that her grandmother brought her with every visit until her father pointed out that she got them free from hotel stays. (Actually, I continued to like them even after *my* father pointed that out.)

Its art that takes care of you. He placed a hand over his eyes, like a kid who believed you couldnt be seen if you couldnt see. Im sorry, that was really cheesy.
