Hannah had no need for caffeine, but on cold, rainy days, her vessel craved various hot beverages. They were quite enjoyable, so Hannah didn't feel too awful about indulging the whim.

She sat in the coffee shop with her back to the windows because watching the interactions of humanity was far more enthralling than the water cycle.

A cheerful man entered and shook rain from his umbrella. "Wow," he exclaimed, "it's raining cats and dogs out there!"

Hannah whirled around to look, never having heard of such a phenomenon, but she saw only falling water. She sighed. "I hate metaphors."

It was a wonder that humans understood each other at all with how frequently they said things they didn't really mean. Hannah was learning, though.

She no longer rushed over to heal people who had "been working their fingers to the bone" or whose "hearts were broken." They also had a woeful habit of proclaiming that they were dying when they were perfectly fine.

Sometimes it was funny, however. When she held the door for an elderly woman, she had exclaimed, "Thank you. You're an angel!" with a warm smile on her face. Hannah decided that one wasn't so bad.
