14. Because Michelle asked you to stop the mindless drone strikes, and you never could resist a thing after it’s been made a forbidden fruit.
15. Because I’ve spent years looking for the “perfect girl” when she was right in front of me the entire time. I’m tired of these games, Chelsea, let’s just pick the cutest orphan and adopt it.
