Time for tea: Reading is thirsty work.
Thoughts: I'm liking It's Like This, Cat better now. There's a slight ironic tone and jazzy rhythm that is pleasing once you settle in. I had to laugh at Dave's father getting mad because Dave brought home a Harry Belafonte record. When my aunt was roughly the same age and at about the same time as this book takes place, she bought a Barbra Streisand album and, another time, a Bill Cosby comedy album. My grandmother was disapproving. Another line in the book that made me chuckle was when an older girl offers him a cigarette. He tells her no, but then reflects, "It's nice to be asked."
