How come?

Hell, I don’t know.  I’ve felt irritable for two days.

What are you doing about it?

Nothing.  Ignoring it.

 You know the red light on your dashboard?

The one that lights when my engine overheats?

Stupid.

Don’t mask it with work, or food, or alcohol, sleep, or tv, or giving to other people.
