brass ring

i was half in love with her by the time we sat down.  that’s the thing about girls.  every time they do something pretty, even if they’re not much to look at, or even if they’re sort of stupid, you fall half in love with them, and then you never know where the hell you are.  girls.  jesus christ.  they can drive you crazy.  they really can. “

thank you, j.d salinger, for introducing us to the endearing and unforgettable holden caulfield, the fantastic franny and zooey and the possibility that every person’s brass ring, if you try with all your might, is within their reach.

you will be missed.
