Jenny Woolworth

[ Ibid. ]

The point is that you shouldn’t think that you miraculously have to become a beatnik or a bohemian or a hippie to elude the trammels of convention.

Philip Roth: The Dying Animal

My milk shake brings all the boys to the yard
And their life is better than yours

are probably the two smartest lines of pop lyrics that I’ve been listening to lately.
