I tell you truly, nobody ever wants to just hang out with me. If they're not asking for explanations or intercessions, then they're sharing too much information. 'Why, Jesus? Help me Jesus! Oh, Jesus, that feels good, don't stop!' That's all I hear all the time. You're the only guy who asks me to go have a beer anymore."
