Catcher in the Rye, pg 123

“There were about a million girls sitting and standing around waiting for their dates to show up.  Girls with their legs crossed, girls with their legs not crossed, girls with terrific legs, girls with lousy legs, girls that looked like swell girls, girls that looked like they’d be bitches if you knew them.  It was really nice sightseeing, if you know what I mean.  In a way, it was sort of depressing too… Most of them would probably marry dopey guys.  Guys that always talk about how many miles they get to a gallon in their goddam cars.  Guys that get sore and childish as hell if you beat them at golf, or even just some stupid game like ping-pong.  Guys that are very mean.  Guys that never read books.  Guys that are very boring- But I have to be careful about that.  I mean about calling certain guys bores.  I don’t understand boring guys.”  -Holden Caulfield
