7:100 Silver Linings Playbook “When I read the actual story—how Gatsby loves Daisy so much but can’t ever be with her no matter how hard he tries—I feel like ripping the book in half and calling up Fitzgerald and telling him his book is all wrong, even though I know Fitzgerald is probably deceased. Especially when Gatsby is shot dead in his swimming pool the first time he goes for a swim all summer, Daisy doesn’t even go to his funeral, Nick and Jordan part ways, and Daisy ends up staying with racist Tom, whose need for sex basically murders an innocent woman, you can tell Fitzgerald never took the time to look up at clouds during sunset, because there’s no silver lining at the end of that book, let me tell you.” ⭐⭐⭐ #silverliningsplaybook #books #reading #literature (at the factory)
Dear Scarlet, Here you are in your new hoodie from Grandma. We’ve been talking a lot about neutrality lately. You’ve grown accustomed to saying “Boys can wear girl stuff and girls can wear boy stuff.” I’m trying to break you of that. I don’t want you to even think in terms of boy stuff and girl stuff. It’s all just stuff, and it’s open to everyone. I think going to school has set us back a little bit, but we’re still working away at it. We’ll get there. Anyway, you love your new hoodie.
