I really enjoy joking around. I wish more people acted like comedians do with other comedians, where you can take a topic, riff on it while pushing the envelope toward any witty, dark, or shocking place, and play off each other without consequence. It's just fun to see where something goes in a stream of consciousness conversation with no boundaries.
