“Feeling or hibitually complaining about distress or irritation”
[Fretfully – Adverb]
[Fretfulness – Noun]
Deborah was a mess.
A woman with no stability.
A woman constantly on edge.
A spring tightly wound,
or a stick up the you-know-what.
Nothing in between.
Fretful of every wet floor tile,
of every “death-carrying” mosquito,
and very aware of the many ways to escape a room.
And most importantly a woman who gave poor advice.
“She means well” They’d say.
But we all knew she was a neurotic nutcase.
