I used to have this friend, about hundred years ago, when I was in high school. His name was Stanford. He was a lovely guy and all, but no one really liked him. I guess that no one really understood him or something, but I tell you what, he was a really nice guy, he really was and I mean it. Everyone in the school used to think that he was psycho or something. It was just that he had a few problems and all. I mean that his parents were really crazy people and they’d have above two hemorrhages a piece if they knew that he had failed. Actually, what happened was that he had failed that year in Latin. His parents were so fussy about his studies that even if he got a bad grade and all they would start beating him up or something. Also, he had like ten fathers. I mean that his parents were divorced and all and he really went through a bad phase and all when his parents were getting divorced. Actually he was an unlucky kid, Stanford, he really was. I mean that he has all these family problems and that really affected his studies that year. The main reason that everyone hated him and all was that he is very lazy and unsporty type of a guy. No one liked to hang around with him and all. I liked him. I really did. Only I understood his problems and all. I always helped him out of tough situations.
Well, there were people like Charles who really liked to hoarse around with Stanford and make fun of him about him being womanish and all. I swear that made me puke. Charles was really a lousy person, he really was. He would say anything to anyone not even considering that it might be inappropriate. I mean once Charles said things like “You lousy woman” and “Ya fat fool”, by the way I forgot to tell you that Stanford was really fat and that is what made him so unsporty. That goddam nearly made me puke. I mean it is so disgusting to do such a thing to someone, it really is.

There was this kid in his last year of school and his name was David. This guy was terrible. He really was. I mean that he always used to do strange things like pick his nose. That killed me. It really was awful. Anyway, this kid was a complete disaster. He used to bully other students for fun. I mean that was just disgusting and I mean it. The most awful thing was that David was the biggest phony I ever saw in my goddam life, he really was. He used to act as if he was so strong and muscular but he wasn’t. I mean, for Chrissake, he never even killed a fly in his goddam life. David thought that he was some goddam hot shot.
By the way, I forgot to mention that once old David bullied poor Stanford. That was terrible. I mean who would do that to someone like Stanford, I mean, he already was a kind of a loser. I mean, I didn’t mean to say that and all, what I meant was that he was already so bullied that he did not have the power to stand up for himself.
Anyway, here I am having read this novel at home called ‘The Catcher in the Rye’. This novel really reminded me of Stanford. I mean that Holden Caulfield really resembles with Stanford, he really does. I just wish that I could help Holden because I really think that the goddam world did not understand Holden’s problems and his thoughts, I really do. Aw, the world’s a lousy place.[/b]
