Shit. I think I left my curling iron on.

Don’t look right now, but in a minute, glance casually over my right shoulder and tell me if that’s that girl from that thing. You know, that girl. It totally is, isn’t it?

 What the hell is going on with your eyelid?

I think you’re smart.

I think you’re dumb.
