How do you know? How does anyone know? Is there something that can tell you whether it's really true, or whether it's a figment of your imagination?
You like me, don't you? If I were to try guess, I would say yes, but then, I've been wrong before. But never has this happened before, when someone wants to talk to me as much as you do. You continue a conversation when it ought to have finished, and I go on, afraid to let it fizzle out, because it's nice, it's entertaining, and it means I get to snatch a few extra moments with you.
You like me, don't you? That's what this is about? Or is this another straying path from cobblestones to weeds?
