“...dismayed that I would pass up true adventure for the sake of a fake one I'd never get around to inventing.”
Hollis Gillespie, Bleachy-Haired Honky Bitch: Tales from a Bad Neighborhood

“I'm sure you've heard people use the term, "You just don't get it." Well, I figured out the 'it' is the point in life. I believe I was supposed to have been there when my father died, but it was a point in life I just didn't get.”
Hollis Gillespie, Bleachy-Haired Honky Bitch: Tales from a Bad Neighborhood

“That's the detail of the dead woman I always remember: her bare left foot, along with packets of Top Ramen and a torn box of cat food strewn about as plastic bags danced in the wind of passing cars. I always think how, when she left the house that day, the last thing on that woman's mind must have been the possibility of dying on the pavement with dried noodles crowning her head. Maybe if she had paid more attention to detail, like the oncoming car, she would have made it home to feed her cat.”
Hollis Gillespie, Bleachy-Haired Honky Bitch: Tales from a Bad Neighborhood
