Welcome back to Thursday Quotables! This weekly feature is the place to highlight a great quote, line, or passage discovered during your reading each week. Whether it’s something funny, startling, gut-wrenching, or just really beautifully written, Thursday Quotables is where my favorite lines of the week will be, and you’re invited to join in!
Posting early, before the Thanksgiving madness begins! I just couldn’t let a Thursday go by without a Thursday Quotables post — even though there’s pumpkin pie to be made! Happy early Thursday! Here’s this week’s Quotable:
You were drunk, and I made the mistake of mentioning Showgirls in a near-empty subway car. The pole had no idea what it was about to endure.

Author: David Levithan
Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2011
I almost went with one of the many heart-breaking definitions from this remarkable book, but in the spirit of Thanksgiving, thought I’d go with one that made me laugh instead!
