a series: questions you wish you were asked

3.

how are you feeling today?

i feel okay. i've been thinking a lot.

what's been on your mind? i remember you mentioned your mom visiting soon, last week.

yes. she postponed, but that's okay. i would be busy anyway.

(i hear a scream outside. i'm told it's a form of therapy.)

oh, okay. how does that work?

it's a way of decompressing. similar to tensing then releasing your muscles one by one.

interesting.

(we circle back to my initial admission.)

so, you say you've been thinking a lot?

yes.

about what?

hm, school mostly. i'm worried about winter break and how i'll handle not being busy.

you say you don't like being busy, though.

yes.

so, which one is it?
