ART BY ABIGAIL LLOYD
So how do you know Sam? Do you want to get out of here? What's your gchat? What kind of music do you like? How do you like your bananas? What's your phone number? Do you watch the L word? Are you joking? How do I get to your place? Do you like cats? What's your roommate's name, again? What are you doing? How did you sleep? What do you mean? Are you out to your parents?
Do you want to have a sleepover? What do you want for breakfast? Does this shirt make me look like a butch? You really think they have no idea? Did your friends like me? Do you like my new bra? What are you thinking? Can I leave this toothbrush here? Do you want to go to the thai place? So, do you want to be girlfriends or something?
Where do you want to sleep tonight? What do you feel like for dinner? Did you brush your teeth today? Will you give me a backrub? Is your roommate home? What do you want me to do about it? What do you want to watch? Do you want to go, or would you rather stay home? Are you getting your period? When's your lease up, again? One or two bedrooms?
What should we make for dinner? So they think I'm just your roommate? Did you fart? Are the cats in or out? Will you clean the bathroom this time? What are you thinking? What's wrong? Have the cats been fed? Where are you? You're never going to tell them, are you? What job? Where is it? Will you come with me?
What did you have for dinner? Who did you go with? Did you buy your ticket yet? What are you doing today? Is it raining there? How was work? Do you miss me? Are you wearing the lacy bra? Have you talked to them yet? How did you sleep? Did you read that article I sent you? How are the kitties? Are you coming or not?
What do you think? What am I supposed to do? Is this really what you want? What about the cats? Will I see you? Will you send it to me? So that's it?
