Things That Make You Go :Snark:

I knew it, I knew it, I knew it to be true.

I of the poor white trash childhood who spent my summers in libraries and my allowance on books, who read Faulkner too early and L'Engle too late, who was told by my husband that he had "married down" --

I knew all along there were "lots of us stone folk everywhere" as the stone man said in The Point.

And I will read until I die though I'll never be as educated as the next fellow.
