Living on the edge

“That is not what I meant. ”

No—but why did you use the word ‘discipline’? Are you trying to say that I’m not disciplined?

No no. She said the idea wasn’t feasible. And that’s why I explained. Or else, what do I care! You guys go ahead and do as you please. I couldn’t care less.

“No, it’s just…”

‘It’s just’ what? Are you insinuating that I am edgy?!

“No Sum—”

Good, because I'm not.
