Tori did not like the frazzled, skunk-baked look of us, but graced us with an interview out of pity after we explained that we were exercising a mind-body connection. In order to become more in touch with our personal energy in relation to the universe, we needed to touch the very person we touch ourselves to. She seemed to understand immediately, and did not care that we were also using her as an obvious attempt at a readership boost.
