That is the thing about compassion, isn’t it? It doesn’t require sympathy.

Piss off!

Did I catch you at a bad time? If I didn’t know any better I might think you were getting a little riled up.

It’s an important issue, actually. Over-prescription of antibiotics has created some very nasty drug-resistant bacteria and we’re on the brink of losing that battle. Some don’t even respond to the heaviest antibiotics we have.

If a t̶r̶e̶e̶ ̶f̶a̶l̶l̶s̶ ̶i̶n̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶w̶o̶o̶d ̶man opens his mouth and there’s nob̶o̶d̶y̶ woman around to hear it … d̶o̶e̶s̶ ̶i̶t̶ ̶m̶a̶k̶e̶ ̶a̶ ̶s̶o̶u̶n̶d̶ is he still wrong? How all men are immature, inadequate bastards?

Don’t be so hard on yourself. It’s not your fault you were born male.

I have a wide repertoire of moans, groans and sighs that I’ve assembled over time …

Aww, poor baby. It’s okay. I know it’s scary to give up control like that, but you’ll find the woman some day who will make you moan, groan and sigh for real. You aren’t doomed to always fake your pleasure. Keep the faith that it will happen.

Oh, my God … how did you do that?

<sigh> I saw (and started writing) this before the edits. With a bit of convincing I might have actually thought I was getting you agitated. Now you’re just laying it on a bit thick. If this is the “utterly convincing” part, you really need to start pursuing less gullible women.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
