Q: What was the most terrifying moment of your life?

A: I joined speech and debate, and the first debate I gave was terrifying. I stuttered, I was scared and I messed up all the facts and I got all the sources wrong.  

Q: What is your favorite pickup line?

A: Him: What are you doing after this?

Her: Nothing.

Him: Where are you going?

Her: Home.

Him: Can I follow you because my parents always told me to follow my dream?
