One thought on “John is one of the best. anyone who knows him will really appreiacte this.

  1. Ja, Steinbeck kon skryf! Uit “Tortilla Flat” waar die skool nurse die jong, arm, paisano wat vir haar maer lyk, vra of hy genoeg kry om te eet:

    “Freddie, do you get enough to eat?”
    “Sure,” said Alfredo.
    “Well, now. Tell me what you have for breakfast.”
    “Tortillas and beans,” said Alfredo.
    The nurse nodded her head dismally to the principal.
    “What do you have when you go home for lunch?”
    “I don’t go home.”
    “Don’t you eat at noon?”
    “Sure. I bring some beans wrapped up in a tortilla.”
    Actual alarm showed in the nurse’s eyes, but she controlled herself. “At night what do you have to eat?”
    “Tortillas and beans.”
    Her psychology deserted her. “Do you mean to stand there and tell me you eat nothing but tortillas and beans?”
    Alfredo was astonished. “Jesus Christ,” he said, “what more do you want?”
