[What have you got to offer your partner?]
Not much. It’s not self deprecating, just the truth. I mean I think I’m an interesting enough person. I got a good personality and enough conversational skills to keep from being a total social failure. Thing is, I’m loyal, faithful and all those things you get a dog for ‘cause when it comes to the things you get a girlfriend for, I’m pretty darn useless. You see, I got this skin and touching it is fatal. It’s not like something I can help ‘cause believe me if I could, I’d make it stop. It’s not like I don’t wanna be normal. I never really got ‘round to the whole relationship stuff. My mutation manifested when I was sixteen during my first kiss. Put the guy into a coma for three weeks. Bobby, he was my first real boyfriend and things ended bad with him ‘cause we couldn’t get into the physical aspects of a relationship. Thing is, I don’t want to not be me. You know? And my mutation, it’s a part of me. Guess when it comes right down to it, I don’t have much more to offer than a dog.
