We set up our account, and we made it clear in our bio what we were looking for, Then we put up some cute pics of us on the show to grab people’s attention, And although at the beginning we had to deal with some people who clearly didn’t understand art, After hours of swiping, feeling like we’d never find the one, we bumped into Farhan, and he was more than happy to have us over to lunch with him and his neighbour, so that’s what we did. Alright, so we’re in the spot, in the place That’s 1, we’re looking for 2. OK so maybe round here Hello! Thomas!
