They're People Too Blogfest

Thanks to the lovely Tessa at Tessa's Blurb for hosting the They're People Too Blogfest.  I was going to post an excerpt from a WIP, but after I looked at it, it just didn't fit the spirit of the fest, so I wrote this series of haiku instead. It's supposed to be a conversation between two personified emotions. Can you guess them?

So what do you think?
I’m not sure. I can’t decide.
Well, that’s nothing new.

Why are you so mean?
Hello? Duh. It’s what I do.
Yeah. Maybe you’re right.

Of course I’m right.
Then you decide for me.
Yeah, that’ll happen.

Oh, I just don’t know!
It’s an easy choice: chicken or fish
But they’re both so good!

Did you guess the emotions? They're doubt and sarcasm. Now, go check out the rest of the entries
