Tonight the following conversation took place with a good friend of mine, who will remain nameless...
(Conversation Topic: Recommendations of Classics)
Friend: Have you read Tom Sawyer as an adult?
Kate: No. I was never a fan when I was kid.
Friend: Really? I think you should read it again. You know Mark Twain was a total racist - so you would probably like the book.
Yeah, I'm not sure what that means either. I don't know if this is one of those "Ah Ha" moments, that Oprah always talks about, where I need to re-evaluate my behavior or just a really funny comment. I'm choosing to go with the latter.
Mind you, this was also the same conversation that produced this comment - from a Lit major no less...
Friend: You should also re-read Catcher in the Rye...it's got a swear word in it.
