|Jeez. Thanks a lot, Gretchen.|
Listening to a book on tape. It's a mystery called A Crack in Everything. I mention to Mike that I'm liking it. He says. "I remember that. Let me look up the review." (he does short reviews of every audio book he listens too. He is like that. You should see his graphs on our utilities or gas consumption in cars)
"Oh, yeah. I wrote 'hobo bag, hobo bag, hobo bag.' The character mentions her damn hobo bag every few minutes."
He's right. And now I listen for "hobo bag" instead of paying attention to the book. It's in every goddamn chapter.
I can only hope that I can some day manage to destroy an entire book*** or movie with a single sentence. Because wow. the heady power of an observation!
*** but not MY book. Please, god, not something I wrote.
