Fretful – Adjective

“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.
