Well okay maybe he on ly read the covers but

00:23

cut him some slack and yeah that's a tough book

00:25

Booker loves reading the classics because they highlight the concepts

00:28

of romanticism that have always attracted him He loves the

00:30

idea that all that deep intangible stuff wins out over

00:34

more material concerns Like how ebeneezer scrooge it's counting his

00:38

coinage but realizes in the end after a terrifying supernatural

00:41

encounter that love kindness and generosity are where it's really

00:44

at Well yeah that stuff is terrific but what booker

00:47

doesn't realize is that how one treats one's own property

00:50

reflects on that person in a totally not shallow way

00:54

for example because booker demonstrates a complete disregard for all

00:58

items Physical bedroom is a disaster area anyone who's ever

01:02

come over and see It has been appalled and terrified

01:04

and it's immediately drawn away from booker it's not because

01:07

they're superficial folks who could only be friends with clean

01:09

rooms people booker's room exhibits a lack of organization and

01:13

cleanliness and propriety and a lack of concern about the

01:16

idea that someone might trip over his underwear pile and

01:19

bump their head on the desk Olle pretty valid points

01:23

plus you should see booker's books dogeared like crazy covers

01:26

and pages bent and wrinkled water damaged And what is

01:30

that smell coming from them Maybe we'd rather not know

01:33

Well those who know about booker's love of books are

01:35

understandably confused What kind of respect is that Show the

01:38

object of one's affection He wouldn't treat a significant other

01:41

that way would he Would he Well maybe he would

01:44

could be a while before booker goes to a high

01:46

school dance and then there's the issue of voters Clothing

01:49

hasn't done laundry since Well okay ever his mom does

01:52

the honors occasionally but she's been trying to take a

01:55

hands off approach lately so booker learns his lesson hasn't

01:58

exactly been working so he stinks to high heaven even

02:02

higher Maybe people avoid coming anywhere near him and that

02:04

makes it awfully hard to make friends and or pursue

02:06

Any sort of romantic engagements and again can you blame

02:10

him No one wants to spend time with a human

02:12

being who forces them to come equipped with clothes pins

02:15

Hopefully booker will read a book one day on a

02:17

personal hygiene or how to take responsibility for one's belongings

02:22

or howto identify mold well In the meantime though until

02:25

he figures out the importance of taking pride in his

02:27

own properties probably gonna have a rough time of it 00:02:29.642 --> [endTime] You can ask anna karina to homecoming
