  • It began with a basketball game. Mike Dichter and I went up for the same rebound, and I accidentally stuck my elbow in his chest.

  • “Do you really think you can take him?” he asked me.Since Kevin had always been one of my most loyal and servile followers, I was astonished by his doubt in my physical prowess.“I know I can take him,” I said.“He’s three inches taller than you,” Kevin said.“So?”“He’s really strong.”“I’m really strong.”Kevin shrugged. “Okay,” he said, “but I think Mike could take you.
  • The next day in school everything proceeded as usual. I listened to the teachers, took notes, fell asleep, made a few uncalled-for remarks, and gazed at Denise Young’s legs.During lunch I was sitting with a tableful of friends,
