TALKING YOURSELF DOWN
A: I feel like punching this pesky motherfucker right in the face.
A: Well, it might break his nose or shatter his face plate or both.
A: He'd end up in the hospital for a few days, and it would probably drain his bank account. Then he'd have to take out a loan with really high interest rates, and eventually he'd go bankrupt, at which point he'd probably turn to the bottle for solace.
A: Well, he'd develop a drinking problem, which would probably ruin his life.
A: It would be great to see his life reduced to drunken brawls and petty crime.
A: Oh, without a doubt. I'd be proud, and I'd be pretty psyched.
A: Yeah, I'd be really psyched.
A: Well, that's what I was thinking all along.
A: Mind your own business.
Next ... Turn that frog into froggy hash!
