I know! Let’s play the “trust game.” I’ll attach these wires to your forehead and you have to trust me not to flip the switch connected to this car battery. Okay?
No, it’s not okay. No way am I doing that!
Why not? Don’t you trust me?
No, I don’t.
Why not?!? We’re friends!
My guru once told me never to trust anyone who says “Don’t you trust me?*
That’s totally ridiculous. Do you trust your guru more that you trust me?
Hell, yes, I do.
And why is that?
For one thing, he’s never tried to attach electrified wires to my head.
