OK fine, I’ll pay to continue the game. I mean, I never pay for games so I’m treating myself. I deserve this.

Level 4: Connecting To Facebook

If I connect to Facebook I can ask my friends for lives, so like, I won’t have to pay as much money for the game. It’s a little embarrassing, but I think people will understand my pain.

Level 5: Everything is Sweet and Divine
