“…If I had to say one good thing about Americans in general…it’d be that Americans have the ability to firmly grasp and thoroughly integrate into their very souls the concept of, “maintaining.”
They have maintained an inflated, audacious opinion of themselves for decades. The rest of the world is constantly forced to change, adapt, survive or die in accordance with the awesome, life-changing, fairy tale-like whims of the United States population…somehow, they remind me of crazed-lifestyle zombies…slouched and stumbling towards the checkout lines…maintaining audacity all the way… ”

“…I trust that if I tell you, you’ll not attempt to bust us?”
And then she hiccuped up a 150-proof belch that staggered off drunkenly down the old and treacherous city street.
Damn that jitterbuggery!
He charged her with public-intox and illegally visiting Cheng Du without a visa…
In the backseat of the cruiser, she audaciously accused her accuser of extensive abuse to her emotional stability. Then, she fitfully faked a violent seizure.

“Thanks a lot.”
