Now New York Is Laughing

Guy #1: Man, do you think *Jane is hot?

Guy #1: Well, I think that she thinks I’m arrogant, but I’m not. It just comes off that way because I’m really insecure, my confidence is all fake.

Guy #1: Anyway… Can we please talk about my insecurities for a while, we never talk about me.
