Billy was up all night writing a twenty
paper. He told me he felt great the next morning.
"Mistress procrastination didn't hit me hard enough. I wish it would have been a thirty page paper."
I said, "You know
Billy, you really have a serious
case of procrastomasochism."
He nodded with
a sick grin on his face
and told me about how much reading
he had to do for his test tomorrow morning.
