Your Lousy Career

So i read the first Twilight book and was all into it, and then finished and now...don't have the next one. All checked out at the library, don't really want to buy one.
So... in the meantime, I picked up "Nine Stories" by J.D. Salinger.
(from my downstairs guest room/ bookstore!)
I was really into all his stuff in high school, so it had been awhile. Very abrupt and poignant.
Then last nite I heard Colbert talking about J.D. Salinger. He's still alive. Writing, but not publishing.
I loved the following passage from Uncle Wiggily in Conecticut:

"Like hell it is. Who called who? And who came two hours late? You're gonna stick around till I'm sick of you. The hell with your lousy career."

For some reason I just can relate to that concept- your lousy career!!

This is a picture of J.D. Salinger
