the friday 56


Rules: 

*Grab a book, any book. 

*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader (If you have to improvise, that's ok.) 

*Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it) 

*Post it. 


I'm listening to Anxious People for my book group next Wednesday.



From page 56:

The bank robber often thinks about that to this day.  Not about how terrible it was, but about how odd it is that you can't hate your mom.  That it still doesn't feel like it was her fault.

___________

They were evicted from their apartment the following February, and the bank robber swore never to become a parent, and, when the bank robber ended up becoming a parent anyway, swore never to become a chaotic parent.  The sort who can't cope with being an adult, the sort who can't pay bills and has nowhere to live with their kids.
