i know exactly how she feels

She found that when she didn’t have a notebook it was hard for her to think. The thoughts came slowly, as though they had to squeeze through a tiny door to get to her, whereas when she wrote, they flowed out faster than she could put them down. She sat very stupidly with a blank mind until finally “I feel different” came slowly into her head. She sat digesting the thought like a Thanksgiving dinner.

Yes, she thought, after a long pause. And then, after more time, Mean, I feel mean.
