What's a daily activity you must do that's not one of your favorite activities?

Paperwork. I don't know who invented it, but I know of a couple of demons I'd like to introduce them too.

It seemed like a good idea at the time, taking on the role of Regional Commander, Western United States. I knew the other American one, it made sense where we were based, and yes, my ego liked the fact that I was the only man ever to reach Regional Commander before I was twenty five.

But Dios, the paperwork. I have reports on my own activities to write - and have you ever tried writing up exorcisms after seeing certain movies? - and then I have to make sure the junior Wardens under my command fill out their reports. Then I have a ton of reports that land on my desk to read. How we are doing in the war, what the various signatories of the Accords are up to, if anything changes. And you know what's worse? The fact we have to hand write everything. Someone was having a laugh when they gave wizards their own personal bio-electromagnetic field to go along with the uber-powers we have. It means we can't use any technology past about 1950 without running the risk of it blowing up - which sucks. (Though my personal opinion? Even if we could, the Merlin is so stuck in his ways we'd still be handwriting reports anyway).

So there I am, after saving people once again, having to write up the whys and wherefores in a fashion that our Captain will accept.

I hate paperwork.
