‘Who would you be?’

He laughed.

‘What’s so funny?’

‘Just the first answer to pop into my head.’

‘Which is?’

‘Which is… it’s way too morbid for right now – for post-sex chit chat.’

‘Go on, tell me, who would you be, if you had to choose someone?’

‘Really?’

‘Yes, go on.’

‘You really want to know who I’d like to be?’

‘Just tell me…’

‘Okay…’

‘Well?’

‘Okay, well...’

‘What?’

‘Okay – any still-born baby.’

‘What?’

‘You asked.’ 

‘That’s way morbid… That’s weird.’

‘I know.’

‘That’s…’

‘I know. Believe me, I know.’
