Because of the sheer simplicity of his job, Frank had a lot of time to himself. Instead of reading his books, or learning a new language, Frank liked to discuss his daily goings on and the world in general to the only person he felt comfortable talking too: Himself.
“I wonder where to go on holiday this year?” Frank mused to himself.
“Oh not this again” he replied.

Frank’s voice in his head sounded irritable. He must be in a bad mood, he thought to himself - only to have it confirmed an instant later.
“Well of course we’re in a bloody bad mood!” replied Frank, so loud that other people in his office would have definitely heard if, of course, he spoke it aloud. Which he did not.
The voice in Frank’s head was himself, and Frank was very aware of that. There was nothing wrong with Frank mentally; no schizophrenia, manic depression, or insomnia. Putting it bluntly, Frank’s mind was sound, if a little neurotic, and clearly annoyed about something. Emotionally however, Frank was repressed – and that’s putting it lightly.
