Drabble: Exertion


“You’re trying too hard.”

“Okay, I’ll put in less effort. Then I’m sure to succeed!”

“Ooh, sarcasm. I’m just saying, don’t make a big deal of it. Leave it alone, and it’ll fall into place.”

“That’s not how things work. In my experience, when you don’t make a big deal of things, when you leave them alone, they don’t fall into place; they go to shit.”

“Honey, I think this is one of those things that you just have wait for.”

“To hell with waiting. I’m going to sit here till I’ve grown a freaking Tom Stossel of a moustache.”
