I liked Gatsby before it was cool to like Gatsby.
“A Little Party Never Killed Nobody”
It killed Myrtle.
And Gatsby…don’t forget Gatsby
Now that I’m out of love with you, I realize how much I enjoyed loving you, even if it hurt. At least my life wasn’t boring back then.
I forgot how depressing Gatsby is until I saw the movie tonight. No wonder I only read it every few years. It’s filled with too much hope & sadness for one story…Gatsby will always be my first literary love, if only he were real.
