/sɒmˈnɪfərəs/

adjective

1 causing or inducing sleep. 2 soporific. 3 dormitive.

Kristen was a mid-level office manager that often confused affable workplace banter with intimate and everlasting friendship. Anyone that made fleeting eye contact risked a homily about the many men that fucked her, then tossed her away. Her colleagues wanted to feel sympathy for her, but the somniferous enumeration of the details contributing to the wreck that was her life made them want to choke her out.
