What are you up to? Who are you? What do you miss? What do you want? [...] A few of the possible set of questions that prompters will ask you.

With continuous prying, the prompters encourage responses that are based on life experience, interpersonal relationships as well as the specifics of being ‘here’ and ‘there’.
