Now now, I'm trying to convince him not to wear the costume too, but there's no need to lie to the man. Some people are doomed not to be liked, I number amongst them, and the best way for us to be liked is to be something we're not. I mean, if I had it my way everything I'd say would be a direct quote from Star Trek, Monty Python and Terry Pratchett novels, but when I do that people look at me as though I were a nutter, so I conform and attempt to talk like a normal person.
