"That's peculiar... When I gaze at this stone, all of my stress seems to wash away. I'm suddenly not so annoyed with my irrational boss and unappreciative underlings. I'm not even annoyed with the tight-fisted corporation I slave each and every day for."
"Wash away all your stress and angst with the glory of this enduring symbol of love."
