I have this new obsession. It is one that made my friends look at me with utter amazement and wonder if they’d ever really known me at all.

“But…it’s probably just me being difficult…as usual.” She casually said after an hour-long tearful rant about all the horrors she was enduring with her more than narcissistic and egotistical boss. “But you know…it’s okay; I’m used to it now.
