The Yawning

The one action that irked him most, above all the many and multiplying ones in his irksome life: he is talking with her and she yawns. He, with just enough vanity to believe he is fascinating. It is not always out of boredom, it could be the crushing weariness of her life. Then he yawns in sympathy – uncontrollable – and wonders if it has the same effect on her. Horrifying to think one could be a bore. Only real cure for it is love or, at the least, kind-heartedness.
