"I'd never leave you here like the color of your cheek"
people are just so friendly in the winter. It's cold, and some people have a real problem with that. They let it pester, and annoy them to the point where they can do no more than sneer at the smile resting lightly on your face. Gee, everyone's so happy, everyone's so cheerful. When you've slipped, nearly falling and Kam tries to help you up, someone may appear out of nowhere and explain that public displays of affection are criminal in the state of Utah.
"You can be fined for that kind of stuff",he puffs from under his disheveled mustache; his eyes shine with a crusty kind of pleasure.
Someone might say,
"We've been robbed and it's all your fault. Thanks for remembering to lock the door. Everything is gone and it's your fault."
Then they'll wait until you've had something of a mental breakdown to tell you that it was a lie. You don't do that to people who have dabbled in mental instability.
There's a word I'm inclined to share:
Misanthropy: a generalized dislike, distrust, disgust, contempt, or hatred of the human species, human nature, or society.
Thanks very much.
