The most important is not to use such pick-up lines: “Oh my God, did you just fart? ‘Cause you blew me away!” And yes, this has been used on Priyanka.
Asked to share her top three goals, Priyanka said, “To go to every island in the world, to have lots of babies and the third one would be…I don’t know! I’m still thinking about what my third one would be.
