Mother told me I needed to stop, but I couldn’t stop now, not when I was so close to winning! My eyes were fixated on the television and the controller was making my hands sweaty. I didn’t even see my brother when he walked into the room.

As soon as James walked into the cafeteria, Amy’s eyes lit up. Her heart started beating faster and her palms got all sweaty. She crossed her fingers that he would come sit at her table.

It isn’t the most glamorous job. I mean, who wants to stare into people’s mouths all day? I guess it’s kind of fun to play with all those tiny brushes and drills, though. Besides, the profession pays very well.

James placed the small sticky square onto the top corner of the envelope and dropped it in the large blue box. He hoped it would get there in time. Nobody likes a late birthday message.

I just can’t figure them out. Sometimes I get so frustrated. Like when I ask the file to save, and I come back an hour later and it has erased my paper. I also can’t stand all these goofy names: “mouse,” “web surfing, “double-click.” Who came up with that nonsense anyway?
INFER: What is frustrating this man?

Her shoulders slumped and she frowned.
