Forget the wonky formating, start dialog and uneven syntax, this story is funny, funny as in laugh out loud. It's a balancing act of daily emotions and activities and I'd compare it to the Brit TV comedy "The Young Ones" from decades back. Upload this and take an entertaining side-trip into the lives of itchy personalities.
