Some Inappropriate Responses

 

Weathermen and women delighting at the prospect of unseasonable warmness in February, or even January.

 

Staring at children to watch for their glee; an inability to mask that hunger for emotions, yours of which have atrophied.

 

Giving your dog/cat a good telling off.

 

Cheerily discovering crippling schadenfreude in others.

 

Excitement at the prospect of self-inflicted curfews due to civil unrest.

 

Nodding and making like you know what hubris means because you are too proud or full of ambition (which ultimately leads to your demise).
