“Hello, White Shirts. Look at your Tricolore Klingon Sifare above, now back to me, now back to your Sifare, now back to me. Sadly, he isn’t me, but if he started wearing well-tailored shirts and switched to a closer distance to his soprano, he could look at bit like he’d be me (also, look how this skirt fits into my hands. No jumping through hoops).
Look down, back up, where are you? You’re in Paris with the Sifare your Sifare should sound like. What’s in your hand, back at me. I have it, it’s a suit jacket that matches this shirt that you love. Look again, its buttons are now legato lines. Anything is possible when your Sifare sounds like piny seria and, also, a lot like a lady. I’m on a table, dancing. #SeriaSpice.
