Random piece from The outsiders

"This house ain't messy. You oughtta see my house."
"I have.  And if you had the sense of a billy goat you'd try to help around the place instead of bumming around."
"Shoot, kid, if I ever did that your mom would die of shock."
I liked Two-Bit's mother.  She had the same good humour and easygoing ways that he did.  She wasn't lazy like him, but she him get away with murder.

-- S.E. Hinton

[my comment.. I prefer to read, stitch, write, over housework]
