He knows me too well

“You look mad.”

“I’m not mad.”

“You look mad.”

“I’m not mad.  This is my thinking face.”

“Your thinking face looks an awful lot like your I’m-about-to-tear-someone-a-new-asshole face.”

“I’m not going to tear anyone a new asshole.”


“I’m not mad.”

“I can practically feel your annoyance from here.”

“Oh I’m annoyed.”


“Annoyed is not the same thing as mad.”

“Yeah but I’ve seen you ‘mad’ maybe four times in the last five years.”

“This is not one of those times.”

“But that’s not going to stop you from tearing someone a new asshole.”

“No, I’m not doing anything yet.  I’m just waiting to see what happens.  Watching to see how events unfold.”

“I know damn well you’ve already got the entire message written out in your head.  You just haven’t sent it yet.”

“That doesn’t mean anything.  I have the next three conversations with at least four people written out in my head.”

“There’s that face again.  And you have the habit of not-so-gently dealing with people who are wrong.”

“I’m thinking.  It’s my thinking face.”

“And you’re thinking about tearing someone a new asshole.”

“Not yet.”

“I know you.  And you will bury yourself with your own shovel to prove someone wrong.”

“Only if they’re wrong.”

“So you’re going to tell me you don’t have some 5,000-word diatribe, complete with charts and graphs and a fucking Powerpoint presentation, all set up in your head, ready to go, if that’s ‘how events unfold?'”

“Of course I do.  I’m an ENTP, remember?”

Rolls eyes.  “And aren’t I lucky for that?”

He really does know me too well.
