“A lot of us don’t end up happy, a lot of us die on the way. A friend of mine told me about his father who retired, bought a caravan, and went out for a big celebratory dinner. He had a heart attack, fell off a stool, and died in the restaurant. That’s life. Some people make it and some people don’t.”—Adam Elliot, in “Feats of Clay” by Dani Valent, Good Weekend, March 28, 2009
“Dude! He smells all stinky, worse than fish … worse than cow dung … worse than a rubbish tip … worse than fish and cow dung in a rubbish tip.”—My friend, trying to talk some sense into me about the boy I like.
