We make a lot of noise between us
My cousin is always watching Everybody Loves Raymond in the other room while I’m on the computer. I always hear Raymond’s voice. His deep, throaty voice, like a hungover toad. It’s very unique. Sometimes I continue to hear the thick grog of Ray Romano long after the television is off. Ray tells me things. Ray tells me horrible, horrible things. And I listen.
"i wanted to explain that i am constantly overestimating and underestimating the human race-that rarely do i ever simply estimate it. i wanted to ask her how the same thing could be so ugly and so glorious, and its words and stories so damning and brilliant.”-- markus zusak, the book thief
