I have to be home by six! And I designate you to get me there! YESSSSSSS!” “Can’t you just spend the night there?” I asked. “NOOOO! Booooo. Booo on Quentin. Hey, everybody! Boooo Quentin!” And then I was booed. “Everybody’s drunk. Ben drunk. Lacey drunk. Radar drunk. Nobody drive. Home by six. Promised Mom. Boo, Sleepy Quentin! Yay, Designated Driver! YESSSS!

    But then again, if you don't imagine, nothing ever happens at all. Imagining isn't perfect. You can't get all the way inside someone else. I could never have imagined Margo's anger at being found, or the story she was writing over. But imagining being someone else, or the world being something else, is the only way in.

    Cuando pensaba en él muriendo, que admito que no ha sido muchas veces, siempre pensaba en lo que dijiste, en que se le habían roto los hilos por dentro. Pero hay mil maneras de verlo. Quizá los hilos se rompen, o quizá nuestros barcos se hunden, o quizá somos hierba, y nuestras raíces son tan interdependientes que nadie esta muerto mientras quede alguien vivo. Lo que quiero decir es que no nos faltan las metaforas. Pero debes de tener cuidado con la metáfora que eliges, porque es importante. Si eliges los hilos, estás imaginándote un mundo en el que puedes romperte irreparablemente. Si eliges la hierba, estás diciendo que todos estamos infinitamente interconectados, que podemos utilizar ese sistema de raíces no sólo para entendernos unos a los otros. Las metáforas implican cosas.

    And even though it was ridiculously childish, in the end I had to call myself a faggot, which really annoyed me, because 1. I don't think that word should ever be used by anyone, let alone me, and 2. As it happens, I am not gay, and furthermore, 3. Chuck Parson made it out like calling yourself a faggot was the ultimate humiliation, even though there's nothing at all embarrassing about being gay.

    Desde aquí no se ve el óxido, la pintura cayéndose y todo eso, pero ves lo que es realmente. Ves lo falso que es todo. Ni siquiera es duro como el plástico. Es una ciudad de papel.

    Estoy en este estacionamiento pensando que nunca he estado tan lejos de casa, y aquí esta la chica a la que amo y a la que no puedo seguir. Espero que sea la misión del héroe, porque no seguirla es lo más duro que he hecho en mi vida…

    Here's what's not beautiful about it: from here, you can't see the rust or the cracked paint or whatever, but you can tell what they place really is. You see how fake it all is. It's not even hard enough to be made out of plastic. It's a paper town. (57)

    I always like routine. I suppose I never found boredom very boring.

  • By Anonym

    I am thinking that I don't want this to happen. I don't want to die. I don't want my friends to die. And to be honest, as the time slows down and my hands are in the air, I am afforded the chance to think one more thought, and I think about her. I blame her for this ridiculous, fatal chase--for putting us at risk, for making me into the kind of jackass who would stay up all night and drive too fast. I would not be dying were it not for her. I would have stayed home, as I have always stayed home, and I would've been safe, and I would have done the one thing I have always wanted to do, which is to grow up.

    I looked down and thought about how I was made of paper. I was the flimsy-foldable person, not everyone else.

  • By Anonym

    I'm a big believer in random capitalization. The rules of capitalization are so unfair to the words in the middle. (32)

  • By Anonym

    I felt so detached from all this shit, all this high-school-is-ending-So-we-have-to-reveal-that-deep-down-we-all-love-everybody bullshit.

    I spent the next three hours in classrooms, trying not to look at the clocks over various blackboards, and then looking at the clocks, and then being amazed that only a few minutes had passed since I last looked at the clocks, but their sluggishness never ceased to surprise. If I am ever told that I have one day to live, I will head straight for the hallowed halls of Winter Park High School, where a day has been known to last a thousand years.

  • By Anonym

    It's easy to like someone from a distance. But when she stopped being this amazing attainable thing or whatever, and started being, like, just a regular girl with a weird relationship with food and frequent crankiness who's kinda bossy, then I had to basically start liking a whole different person.

    No te necesitaba, idiota. Te he elegido. Y luego tú me has elegido a mí. Y esto es como una promesa. Al menos por esta noche. En la salud y en la enfermedad. En lo bueno y en lo malo. En la riqueza y en la pobreza. Hasta que el amanecer nos separe.

    No puedes separar a la Margo persona de la Margo cuerpo. No puedes ver lo uno sin lo otro… Al final, no sabias si Margo Roth Spiegelman estaba gorda o estaba delgada, como no sabes si la torre Eiffel se siente o no se siente sola.
