“No, you’re right, it is pretty big.”

“I don’t know how it will fit.”

“I have some practice with it.”

“I’m sure you do.  Can’t let a thing like that go to waste.”

“Nope.  Sure can’t.”

“Must frighten some women away.”

“It has.”

“Can I touch it?”

“Oh yeah well that’s the point, isn’t it?”

“Of course it’s real.  Is it even possible for someone to have a fake one?”

“Yeah, but I think it costs a lot of money and I don’t think it works.”

“Oh yeah, you’re right.”

“I just can’t get over how big it is.”

“Well let’s put it to use.”

“Whenever you’re ready.”

“Isn’t it obvious that I’m ready?”

“Oh yeah, right.”
