Boy these last ten years have been terrible
Boy these last ten years have been terrible. It’s been full of phonies and all. I suppose the first thing that happened after all that Pencey crap was over was the next school I went to. Old Eastwood High. The school was just about as bad as Pencey. There was this one guy, Devin Spears, who was the biggest phony you ever met. One look at him and I could tell he was just about the phoniest bastard to ever be born. He would come to school every day in a suit and tie. The school didn’t even have a required uniform, but he came in every goddamn day dressed like he was going into school for a job interview. He really did.
He always talked about how much of a hot-shot he was, and how his family was so great and all. There was this one time when he was in english class, and the teacher asked this question about some grammar and all. Old Devin Spears raised his hand, and he got the question right, but he messed up his grammar about ten times while answering. He always bragged to his friends saying he was a hot-shot and all. You would have puked just spending a day with him.
