Yes.

Can I ask you a personal question?
Yes.
Are you lonely?
Yes.

That was from a television show. Blunt and to the point, just like good television should be. Wouldn't life be easier if we just asked each other the tough questions?

Do you like me?
Yes.
Wanna be my otra?
Yes.

It would really cut to the chase and take a lot of the drama out of our lives. Not everyone can live like they do on TV. At some point, it has to be simple.

Do you like me?
No.
Is there hope for it in the future?
Probably not.

But you know, people, as a whole, are addicted to the drama. We know it's fun and it gives us something to talk about and complain about. So we maintain that we "don't have time for the drama" but we actually are so addicted to it that we don't even know we are addicted. But wouldn't it be great to not have to deal with it at all?

Are you irritated with me?
Yes.
Why?
Because you are arrogant, self-involved, and full of yourself.

Beating around the bush just makes life more difficult and makes lying that much easier the next time around.

Do you love me?
Yes.
Then why don't you act like it?
I'm flighty.

If we would just take a cue from the blunt lines from television as opposed to running around in circles with each other, we would all live in a land of absolutes. There wouldn't be any guessing. Sure, it might suck initially, but wouldn't you rather know?

Are you happy?
No.
Why not?
