    It wasn’t that I thought he’d really understand a complete and specific sentence like that, but I tend to talk to Tybalt to include him.

    Have you ever thought about what others might think of you? Do they think you might be too fat, too thin, too fair, too dark? In the large scheme of things, does what others think about you really matter?
