Text for Terence Trent D’Arby speech:

Sweetheart listen, I know the last few pages haven’t been good for the both of us and I’ve caused you a lot of grief. But put those bags down, o.k.? Before you make a decision like that, please just listen to me ‘Cos I don’t want you to leave. I definitely don’t want you to leave. Just hear me out.

ZTTP, please stop implying my thumbs are too powerful. They are just quite strong. Though this is the 9th mobile phone I’ve smashed for this message. Also, my favourite meal is chips.
