Know-it-alls. People who argue just for the sake of arguing. Big braggers. Having any discussion whatsoever about American Idol. Sugar-free mocha syrup when you didn’t ask for sugar-free. The 100 pages that still need to be written in less than three weeks. Submissions with no answers. Waiting for answers. Trying to wait patiently but being unable to but not wanting anyone to know that so hiding it as best I can. So waiting anxiously. Biting fingernails. Waiting. And waiting. But hoping, still hoping—actually maybe it’s not so annoying to always, always hold out hope.
