1. What is your favorite word?
2. What is your least favorite word?
3. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
4. What turns you off?
5. What is your favorite curse word?
6. What sound or noise do you love?
7. What sound or noise do you hate?
8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
9. What profession would you not like to do?
10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?

How would you answer some or all of the above?

I'm now wondering what it says about me that I honestly have absolutely no idea how I'd answer any of those.

Juxtaposition

"Kike"

Cop. What a thankless, stressful, soul-numbing thing to do.

"Fuck it, Mike, might as well let you in."
Either that, or "Hey, your dog's here!"
