ik a lot of ppl hc that todd writes little thoughts all over his books but i have a counter argument... since todd is basically the personification of anxiety, i argue that he would be the type to like do everything he can to not mess up the "newness" of the book, meaning he'd be scared to write in it, would barely open the book to try and read it cuz he doesn't want to bend the pages, and so on
BUT! there's also the counter argument to that counter where bcuz todd gets more comfortable in himself bcuz of keatings and neil and the dps, and so after years of being anxious and careful he actually falls in love w the concept of personalizing your books and visibly showing your love & excitement for those books!

Question: I recently talked with my grandparents - who are black, as I am - and here is what they told me: They said that if black people in the Jim Crow South had the same cynical mindset back then as the 'woke' crowd essentially demand that we hold today, there would've been a lot more suicides. Instead, they were taught to look for the good.
Jimmy Reed: And that's a very solid point, my lovely. We black folks have a right to be happy, too - and, if that means seeing the glass as half-full, then that's how we do it. I really don't like the feeling of sad or angry.
