• Grandma
 – “Grandma comes up and says the same
   thing. She says when boys go from the
   one number year, which is nine, to the
   two number year, which is ten, they’re
   changing and prone to the nosebleed.
   She says I might have too much blood in
   me anyway and a good cleaning out
   wouldn’t do me one bit of harm.” (191)

           Shakespeare
• “I do believe, induced by potent
  circumstances
  That thou art mine enemy.
  …I don’t know what it means and I
  don’t care because it’s Shakespeare
  and it’s like having jewels in my
  mouth when I say the words. If I had a
  whole book of Shakespeare they could
  keep me in the hospital for a year.”
  (196)
