Sometimes I wish I could live in books. And by sometimes I mean every second of every day.
A little bit about me

I do believe in fairies.
Anonymous asked: Racetrack, where would you take a girl on a date? Spot, I have the same question for you. Also Skittery, if you're feeling up for it.
Sarah: Race, don’t take her to Sheepshead first thing. And if you go to a theater, don’t let it be Medda’s. There are certain things a young lady doesn’t need to know about you right away.
Spot: And by that she means, don’t lose your shit on the first date over something that’s not her.
Race: I don’t know what either of you lunatics is talking about. Why are you both so interested in my love life?
Sarah: I have two little brothers, and … whatever Jack is. Giving sisterly advice is just what I do.
Spot: What is Jack?
Race: He’s a cowboy. The question I ask myself is what you see when you look in the mirror. Because I’m worried it’s Attila the Hun or something.
Sarah: Speaking of that, Spot, you can’t wear a hat the entire time you’re on a date. And you can’t carry the slingshot, either.
Race: And you should button your shirt. And you should wash your hands so they’re not all grimy.
Spot: Show me where I said I wanted to go on a date with someone. And then show me where I asked you two for advice.
Race: You think I’m going to let you go on a date looking like a hooligan?
Spot: LET me? Since when do I have to get your permission to do anything? And anyway, what’s wrong with being a hooligan? I am a -
Sarah: We’re giving you advice now so that you’ll know what you’re supposed to do when the opportunity arises.
Spot: So it’s advance preparation?
Spot: So why isn’t Skittery getting the benefit of all your dating knowledge? He doesn’t even have any territory.
Sarah: I already know what Skittery wants to do on a date. He wants to stroll in the park holding hands, visit a bookstore, and read poetry aloud while drinking coffee.
Race: Skits told you all that?
Sarah: No. I’ve just planned it. I mean, guessed it.
Spot: You have it all wrong. That’s all romantic and crap. When does Skittery get to show off his fighting skills? When do you assess his skill with a slingshot? Do you even know if he can circumnavigate the city on a raft?
Sarah: What do you think a date is?
Spot: A chance to assess what skills the other person is bringing to the table, so you know if they’re useful or not.
Race: Spot, maybe you’re not ready to date.
Spot: You two go on and on about advance preparation, but you’re not willing to do it yourselves.
Sarah: I’ll keep your advice in mind.
Spot: That’s all I can ask.
