The first part of this dare is fairly simple. Although love is communicated in a number of ways For the next day If the temptation arises, choose not to say anything. It's better to hold your tongue than to say something you'll regret. Be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to get angry. Would you have time to take that to the dry-cleaners today? Think after two days off, you would have already taken care of that.

All l know is the man left the thermal-imaging device That doesn't change the fact Man, l can't take this much ego. You've been bragging on yourself for 1 0 minutes, man. Last week at the apartment fire, l pulled off two attack lines He might do it in two and a half, but he can't do it under two.

Wayne, you seem pretty high on yourself. Man, he way over the top. That's all l'm saying. Wrath of God, baby. We're just gonna see if Wayne really is the man. That is, if he's for the challenge. He gonna drink the whole thing.

Till l do it under How about you take it? Where the man at now, huh? My mouth's on fire! Captain, how'd you do that, man? You could do it too, Terrell Wanted to remind you about your interview in 1 0 minutes. Congratulations on your cancer-research award. You wanted to check on me? You know, just see if you needed anything.

You called to see if l needed anything? You want me to bring something home for you Caleb, you never asked me this before. Hey, Cat, how you doing, girl? Well, in the last few days He's trying to butter you up for a divorce. And why would he do that? Before my cousin Luwanna got a divorce He started acting nice and sweet, next thing we know He hasn't even talked to her since.

Don't you let him deceive you, girl. Did you clear your history? Did you wipe the websites off so nobody would see where you've been? You know, Caleb, you're not fooling anybody. And what is that? What are you talking about? You're not getting one dime more than you deserve. When this divorce is final, l'm taking my share. You never assume l would do anything worthy of respect.

What were you just looking at, Caleb? What was on that computer screen? Who do you think you're fooling? Do you know why your sweet little gestures mean nothing to me? When you're alone, that's what you default to. And there is nothing honorable about it. This whole love dare thing. Tell me what's going on. Caleb, this process takes 40 days, not four. What's the point of going down a dead-end road Caleb, you're not a quitter. And something tells me you're doing just enough to get by.

But this is not based on feelings.
