No Energy Left

For God’s sake, could you please slow down a little bit? I don’t know about you, but I woke up just 4 seconds ago. I’d still be sleeping if you hadn’t… God, please, slow down: you’re giving me tickles and I can’t concentrate! Careful, careful with that coke… Okay, that’s enough. I’m afraid you’ll have to wait. I’m trying my best like I always do, but the more you insist the slower I will go… It’s up to you.

I’m exhausted, but still, here I am: I’m making an effort because I want to help you. I care about you. At least you could say “thank you” every once in a while… Please don’t start muttering again… It’s useless: believe me. And it gets on my nerves. It’s been some years now and we both have adapted quite well to each other. Still, I know I’m not in my best shape. I’ve had some ups and downs lately but I promise I’ll make it up to you. We can still do great things together! I just ask you for a little patience…

That’s right, probably I should be more patient too, but when you start acting randomly I just can’t follow you. Do you really know what you want to do? Sometimes I think that… No no no no no please, not now… It’s great that you’ve made up your mind, but today I’m not in the mood. Do we have to go through all this again? I’m still recovering from yesterday… Okay, whatever. If you want to go ahead, it’s up to you. But I cannot guarantee you excellent results.

Today it’s one of those days when you just wanna lie down and do nothing. No worries, no duties… Just chilling all day long. Jesus! Are we in the desert? I’m burning like hell and your hands… Please don’t get mad, but your hands are sweaty. What? Where did you go? You can’t just disappear like that! Hello? That’s so nice of you, leaving me here alone with all this work… I’m struggling a lot! Wait, is this all about my comment on your hands? Sorry about that, but I really needed to get it out of my system.

Seriously, why don’t we go somewhere else? It’s too hot in here. Oh, thank God you’re back. For a moment I thought that… Wait, what’s going on? I can hear you walking around. What are you looking for? No, please… Not in that thing again. Where are we going? Come on, please, I need some air. Let me out! It’s too dusty in here. Slow down: we are going to crash! Okay, now it’s much better… Wait, something is not right. I feel dizzy. I think I’m going to faint… Please help! I’m going to die! You forgot my charger!
