Three reasons :
- Rhetoric : "See, I don't hide anything." Indeed, you hide that (that was
a bit humorous... in my mind);
- Personnality : I'm a kind of specialist of the jump from one subject to
another ; I first made some rhetoric and went back to the subject ;
- Foreigner : I'm a french native speaker, don't you know ? I have sometimes
some difficulties in putting in english what I'm thinking in french.
