55 Fiction "Friday": Law School Sympathy Edition

Last year, I would have spent this Friday studying (as opposed to this year: frantically trying to make a filing.)

Study hair: for women, the inventive use of Bic pens and hair elastics, swirls and plaits of nervous energy incidentally highlighting the furrowed brow. Anxiety radiating through the joggling knee, the tapping finger, the constant lip balm application. Returning to caveman-like territoriality, complete with glowering looks, over a particular chair or table in the library.

Hi! I just started reading your blog. Could you shed some light on what a 55 Fiction is?
