Tom was the sort of guy who had never mastered the use of question marks in writing, because he never changed his intonation to ask a question when he spoke.
Who do all these people think they are, he thought to himself, sitting on a bench at the park. When will I finally snap.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Yesterday I started writing, and before I knew it, I had multiple paragraphs (many pages, even!) of awkward, uncomfortable characters in potentially interlocking situations. Tom is one of these characters. So...I'm going to write it, hopefully pretty fast over the next two weeks or so, and then I'll decide what to do with it.
