I know someone who likes to drag out the “s” sound at the end of her words. It’s only when a word ending in the “s” sound is at the end of a sentence.

Like,

“I’m so glad it’s almost Christmasssssss.”

or

“Would you like some mintssssssss?”

It usually does not bother me, but today I wanted to scream each time I heard it.
I felt like I was near the talking snake in The Jungle Book. The one with the oogly eyes that still creep me out if I think about them too long. I cannot remember the snake’s name.
