Life is such a drag…

“Wow! Haven’t seen you in an age! Enjoying the summer?”
“Yes and no.”
“Huh?”
“Well, I was in the car today and I felt like the world and my life are simply passing me by.”
“I know! I feel so like that too. I want to do something but I can’t seem to keep up with it all. It wears me out. And my friends? All they want to do is go out all the time and that is just so empty.”
“I know. I don’t have any interest in that sort of thing any more. What about Jess?”
“She’s away.”
“Again?”
“Yeah. That must be her fifth time this year.”
“Wow. She must really hate Ireland. I mean, why else would you be bothered with all that travelling?”
“Yeah. It makes no sense. No sense at all.”
“Yeah.”

And at that, I left the two fourteen year olds to contemplate the world while they finish their soya lattes.
