One of the things I love about ereaders is how easy it is to highlight quotes. Then I tend to never look at them again. However, I was looking for one quote recently and started looking at some of the things I’ve highlighted recently that made me laugh.
“Caleb hated when people were willfully obtuse. There were enough tragically stupid people in the world without having anyone indulge in recreational stupidity.”
“..at a certain point, you know youâ€™ve gotta call it over when â€˜till death do us partâ€™ starts to sound like a plan, rather than a promise.”
“How can you think youâ€™re not thirsty? Youâ€™re like a dehydrated man whoâ€™s been crawling through the Sahara on his hands and knees for two days with no help in sight.â€
â€œWhy am I not a woman in this scenario?â€
After she took a sip, she said, â€œBecause only a man would do something stupid enough to get himself stranded in the Sahara.â€
â€œI donâ€™t know what Iâ€™d do without chocolate.â€
â€œMy guess is twenty-five to life.â€
“That,â€ she says, pointing to the guy meticulously cutting out hearts, â€œis our token white boy, Fletcher. We love him but will kill him first when the revolution starts.â€
“The vet suggested I cut his dry food allotment by a quarter cup. Humphrey suggested I get sepsis.â€
â€œWhat did you feed my daughter?â€ I ask her.
â€œBesides crack cocaine?â€ she replies. I snarl at her. â€œTofu veggie dumplings,â€ she replies.
â€œSoy has been linked to early puberty.â€
â€œAnal retentiveness has been linked to early murder,â€ she shoots back.
Two paths diverged in our woods, and because we are women, and womenâ€™s choices change dramatically with every single generation, both paths were less traveled by.
