Hi can I buy you that book? (No.) You're right, who needs a book when you and I could create our own story.
When I saw you from across the room, I passed out cold and hit my head on the floor...So I'm going to need your name and number for insurance reasons.
Last night I had the same dream over and over—always the same thing, but in a different location every time. I kept dreaming that I was asking you out, but every time before you answered, I woke up, and I'm dying to know what your answer was.
