it was amazing
bookshelves: librivox
Recommended for: all the girls who moved away from me and never called me back
Read in July, 2007

damn, it just so happened that i read this again over the summer, hoping for a pick-me-up after a year's worth of dashed dreams and unrequited loves, and man it did the trick right up. and everyone here in town must have known I read it, 'cause they were all shifty eyed with me, and would occasionally drop secrets hidden in their everyday, ordinary doublespeak. 'Do you have a Safeway card?' Peggy S. asked me one day, and I thought, OH NO. I'VE SEEN YOUR BOYFRIEND. AND YOU ARE TOO GOOD FOR HIM, BUT STILL, I WISH I COULD HELP YOU. MAYBE WE COULD TAKE A WALK IN THE SNOW AND TAKE PICTURES OF THE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS, AND THEN YOU'LL SEE WHAT IT MIGHT LOOK LIKE BEYOND THE CITY LIMITS.

But what I really said was, Yes, Peggy. Yes, I do. I do.

Could you slide it through the scanner?

Damn. Damn it all, Peggy.
