The subject line is from my favourite 'The Catcher in the Rye'.
I think I read this book first 13 years back and I really did a huge favour on myself. Salinger has used his tongue-in-cheek humour to wrap his wisest thoughts throughout the book, and with what prudence!
Okay, coming back to the subject line - I have witnessed the profundity of this many a times so far. It is really one of those hard-to-accept astounding things!
I really, am not the greatest at elaborating in a jiffy, and I feel lazy to spend a lot of time on this at the moment, despite having a lot to say on this. However, I think I will at least let out the crux of what I got in my head and and you will get what I mean (I hope) -
If I were to sketch out my imagination of the life of such a dweeb from a pretty unbiased sample - It would be an ongoing time-lapse of reading, taking a break for a necessity and back to reading. So dear bookworm do you see, your life is packed! Where is your space for emotional, mental, spiritual or xyz-al growth here? Physical - yeah I give that one to you (fortunately you don't have control on that), unless you have an STH deficit, for which I can only sympathise with you!
Jokes and angst apart, I really feel for these people. I do.
