I love being a college student — a student at all, really — because sometimes you’re assigned things to read and you end up trying to parse sentences like this:
“I discovered, though, that once having given a pig an enema there is no turning back, no chance of resuming one of life’s more stereotyped roles.”
From E.B. White’s essay “Death of a Pig.” I recommend it already and I haven’t finished it.
ETA: Now I have read it all and I must say it’s taking an act of some will for me not to start after the rest of the essays in the book right now, despite the fact that I’m running on about 4 hours of yesterday’s sleep.
