10. because father and child are still one in the realm of thought

9. because all acts are still the acts of the guru, and in the single circle beyond confusion, nothing whatever but everything arises from it

8. because pain and pleasure alike are still ornaments which it is pleasant to wear, and go still follows touch

7. because Vajrayogini and Chakrasamvara are still dating

6. because it doesn’t really matter and he couldn’t care less—still!

5. because “Good luck, Sir!” or “Good luck, Madam!” are still the best advice you’ve ever received

4. because your guess is still as good as mine

3. because first thought is still best thought

2. because he’s still saying “I love you all very much, sweetheart,” with a big wet sake-soaked kiss
