"Why didn't you ask why the actor dude had puppets on his couch?"
Part of me knew why he had them, and the other part of me thought there was no legitimate answer he could give me that would make me not want to leave his house, so it was better just to ignore them. I was determined to get that story. Plus, I don't think I could have asked him why he had the puppets with a straight face. And that dude definitely gets insulted easily. He was on the verge of kicking me out as it was.
