Andrea: I don’t know what that means in reference to the book. I mean, it would make more sense if it was, “The sleep of dirty dark secrets breeds monsters.”
Pat: Did you skip the parts of the book where Jack Torrance was involved?
Andrea: What do you mean? Like, it is saying that reason is asleep/missing?
Pat: Alcohol, temper = Lack of reason.
Andrea: He didn’t have any reason!
Pat: Lord GOD.
Andrea: Oh okay. I am misreading the quote. It makes it sound like the sleep of a reasonable person breeds monsters. DISLIKE. I demand clarity.
Pat: You mean, going to bed at a reasonable hour makes you a monster?
Andrea: No, like reasonable people have monstrous thoughts in their dreams?
I don’t know. Let’s move on.
Pat: What’s scarier to me than The Shining is how you managed to score higher on the SATs than me.
Andrea: What’s scarier to me is that we are pushing 30, and you’re still talking about the SATs.
Andrea: Once Rage is up we will start The Shining?
Pat: I have to catch up on my reading for class. Maybe in a week or so.
Andrea: By the time we are done editing and posting Rage, it will probably have been at least a week.
Andrea: Do we have a plan for The Shining?
Pat: I need a couple weeks to catch up and maybe get ahead on my reading for class.
Andrea: Whenever you’re ready. I might start it before you since you usually tear through once you get into it.
Pat: Because I read faster?
Andrea: I may start The Shining this weekend.
Pat: I keep looking for a used paperback of The Shining at the weirdo book-seller tables outside of the subway near school. No such luck.
Andrea: Any luck procuring The Shining?
Pat: I haven’t really been trying.
Andrea: Should we set some kind of goal for The Shining?
Pat: Yes, I said give me two weeks.
Andrea: Two weeks to get it or to finish?
Pat: To start it.
Andrea: WORD. I remember now, I also told you I would start it last weekend, but I did not.
Pat: You are such a unlistening asspain.
Andrea: SUCK IT
