  1. You just never know… Perhaps I’ve infiltrated your thought process and can sense the inspiration you crave…

  2. That’s an interesting theory… though, I wouldn’t delve too deep – once you find your way through the facade, you might lose your footing and fall into the dark, musty, cavernous abyss that fills the majority of my cranium.
