Some things are hard to remember.I’m thinking now of when Stradlater got back from his date with Jane. I mean I can’t remember exactly what I was doing when I heard his goddamn stupid footsteps coming down the corridor.I probably was still looking out of the window,but I swear I can’t remember. I was so damn worried,that’s why. When I really worry about something, I don’t just fool around. I even have to go to the bathroom when I worry about something.Only,I don’t want to interrupt my worrying to go.
