You are waiting for guests.

Doorbell rings. You go to answer.
There is some stranger that says good things and
makes your mood brighten up. You go back and sit and
continue reading magazine. 

Doorbell rings.
Another stranger says good thing and
you thank him. You go back.

Doorbell rings.
Another stranger says good thing and
you say yes. You go back.

Doorbell rings.
Another stranger says good thing and
you say impatiently yes. You go back.

Doorbell rings.
Another stranger says good thing and
you say "I have already heard that".
You go back and sit comfortably.

Doorbell rings.
Another stranger says good thing and
you say "Go away". You go back.
After some time you have relaxed.

Doorbell rings.
Another stranger says good thing and
you yell "You ******* *****. Go away".
You go back. Time goes on.
You are back in good mood.

Doorbell rings.
You think is another of those **** *******.
You don't answer. It rings and rings.
You go to door and open it.
It's again one of those ******* *****.
You explode at him.
After hours have passed and you begin
to forgot those ringers.

Doorbell rings.
You think is another of those **** *******.
You don't answer. It rings and rings.
You don't answer. You hear later that
guests were behind your door but you didn't answer.
