I always take great care to walk in perfectly straight lines and only on appropriate surfaces. Grass is never acceptable. I fix my expressionless, unfocused gaze forward, avoiding uncomfortable eye contact with strangers. On average it takes me twenty-seven minutes and fifty-three seconds to commute to the office. My watch is always accurate. Every business day my coworkers and I eat lunch at the bistro across the street. Did the waitress smile at me as she listed the specials? Not widely enough. Make a note on the napkin. Is that an unfastened button on her uniform? Oh dear. Properly calculating the tip is always a time-consuming task. I have to eat quickly. I order black coffee, garden salad, and fresh fruit in turn after my senior. We sit and jeer at all the corner-cutters, deviants, and riffraff that behave erratically and selfishly, who impede our otherwise efficient, perfect manner. We try talking of other things, but everyone quickly loses interest and runs out of things to say.

of all misfortune, the worst kind of fate is to have been happy.
