    4. If it’s mine, it cannot appear to be yours in any way.

    5. If it’s yours, it will soon be mine.

    6. If it once was mine, it’ll be mine forever and I’ll be getting it back.

    7. If it looks good on me, beside me, or under me, it’s mine.

    8. If it’s shiny, I’ll probably make it mine.

    9. If I trick you out of it, it’s so fucking mine.

    10. If you bargain with me, you’ll soon be mine.
