introduces himself as roman(he has a foreign accent)
"with all that is going on in the world, where do you think this is heading?"

luckily before they can get too far, my mom calls, as i walk away to get phone, i say, i got problems with CATHOLICS, so you ain't gonna get me to consider JW.
IF I WANT TO CHANGE, I WILL CALL YOU.
