tears D,:I've been forgotten by a friend
Scolded by a stern parent
Disappointed by a bad grade
It doesn't matter what the loss, but I'm crying
Weeping, sobbing, bawling until I die of dehydration

"So, what can I do for you?"
The man sat, briefcase across his knees. "Sector 2-7-0! Everyone's talking about it! What do you call it? Man and merman?"
"Man and woman, actually. And thanks. But we're pretty busy around here, and..."
