Inside this Book – The smell of bleach and sweat followed her through the empty halls. She could hear a woman arguing with someone somewhere on the floor above. Or was it below? What floor was she on, anyway? She pushed her weight against a door and found herself standing in an identical corridor. That it all seemed familiar struck her as ironic, as she’d never gone to high school, let alone college. Maybe she was confusing the building with a hospital, with its similar organizational system based on numbers and letters that seemed foreign until they became so customary it was hard to believe they had ever held any mystery. The first time she’d been sent to McLean, she’d been a teenager. But this wasn’t a hospital, she reminded herself, envying the sense of ownership the real students enrolled here must feel. She wondered if they were sad when it was time to leave it all behind. She hated endings almost as much as beginnings. Almost. She found the classroom and took a deep breath. Her stomach cramped with anxiety. She was taking a cartooning class but could barely draw. How like her to pursue a dream for which she had only half the aptitude. Like being a blind bus driver, she thought. Having a good sense of direction probably wasn’t enough.
Inside this book –There’s a Word for That PDF Book by Sloane Tanen – Henry Holter said in a loud voice, ripe with mock self-importance. All alone at his kitchen table, ignoring the stack of student papers he had to grade, he was talking to himself again, a habit he seemed to have just recently acquired. “I am a lucky, ducky boy,” he said with derision, raising his water glass in the air. “She is a great woman. Even the queen loves me mum.” He grunted, recalling Bunny’s being awarded the Order of the Companions of Honour a few years back. “A little late in coming,” she’d explained to him on the phone afterward, “but I suppose one can’t argue about when one becomes a national treasure.” Henry raked his hair off his forehead, pulled off his glasses, and buried his head in his hands. He was having a very bad week. It had started on Monday when his teaching assistant intimated that the woman Henry was dating had been carrying on with another professor. Henry had suspected the affair, but exactly when did his teaching assistant find out? Who else knew? Not that he should have been surprised about Risa. Between the fitted blouses and the recent TED Talk she’d given wearing a suede miniskirt without stockings (two million views for a lecture on Alexander Pope!), it seemed that every male academic in America, and maybe a few of the females, wanted to sleep with Risa. That she’d chosen Henry in the first place was, he had to admit, the thing he liked best about her. It might be the only thing left that he liked.
