Why do you look so sad?
Josh said staring at me while I paced my email that I’ve read more than twice. I looked up and smiled a sad response.
Do I look sad?
Uhuh. Why? He responded with genuine concern.
I don’t know … is there a reason to be smiling right about now?
Not really, but there isn’t any reason to be sulking either.
I’m not sulking. Go away!
Now you’re just being rude.
And I went back to my reading, trying to wear a smile, trying to while away the hours that seem to drag slowly than usual. I am now slowly growing a steady pity for the moment wasted. I am sitting here letting time fly instead of discovering a better moment, wasting time that could be used for a better memory – a better event.
Josh felt that I didn’t want to be bothered so he took a final glance, studied my trivial woe and walked away.
It may be petty but still wretched nonetheless … pestering.
