So earlier I sent my sister a MySpace message to ask what mom was doing because I needed to call her. Here is an edited (only took out the irrelevent parts) of my exchange with my awesome baby sister:
CrackerjackSis: speaking of which, is it weird that i feel like Zooey is our family combined? I kept thinking it when I was reading that story
me: like Franny and Zooey? Salinger?
me (later): Mom just told me that she couldn’t ever understand what Seymour’s problem was, that she always wanted to live with the Glass family. I told her apparently she’d managed to make her own Glass family.
CJSis: Yeah. I read the two stories like 4 months between each other and I totally forgot the whole story (I don’t even remember if they explain Seymour in Franny) but for most of Buddy’s letter I thought Seymour was his boyfriend.
AHAHHAHA! Seriously, she’s like the best teenager ever. And she’ll be here in two weeks! I will be smarter when she leaves. That’s just how it goes!
