the reason

the real reason why i am working on a farm is so that one day, after the winds have blown me all around the world, i can proudly own a place like this and have you all over for a dinner like this. i promise i'll do it. and you'll be invited and the food will be delicious and we will drink white wine. and listen to the national.

i did, he told me there was nothing i could do unless i wanted to get my heart removed. i told him i'd rather be ugly than heartless. but apparently, some people still think i'm both.

so much for nobility.
