"I hope you got my letters. Okay, that’s a disengenuous start. Of course you got my letters. I’m not going to analyze why you haven’t written back. Okay, that’s not totally true. I have analyzed why there’s no letter waiting for me when I get back from swimming. I won’t waste good paper on theories that I come up with when I can’t sleep at night. This is the deal. I’m not going to get on your case about writing back. I promise. If I want to write to you„ then I’ll write to you. And if you don’t want to write to me, you don’t have to. You have to be who you are and I have to be who I am. That’s the way it is.I usually did all of the talking anyways.

"Seven to one. That’s the ratio of Dante letters to Ari letters. Just so you know. When I get back this summer, i’m going to take you swimming— and drown you! Almost drown you. Then I’ll give you mouth to mouth and revive you. How does that sound? Sounds pretty good to me. Am I freaking you out yet?"
