Rolling With Dogs

Okay, I just spent like an hour looking for a Kurt Vonnegut quote I remembered in part, but didn’t know which book it was in. Now that I’ve finally got it, I’m going to put it up here just so the next time I want to remember it I can find it more easily:

“When a child, and not watching comedians on film or listening to the radio, I used to spend a lot of time rolling around on rugs with uncritically affectionate dogs we had.
And I still do that. The dogs become tired and confused and embarrassed long before I do. I could go on forever.
Hi ho.”

–Kurt Vonnegut, Slapstick or Lonesome No More!

  1. I always found Kurt Vonnegut to be pretty hit-or-miss. I loved Mother Night, Slaughter-House Five, and some of his short stories, but never took a liking to anything else.

  2. I meanwhile enjoy his work fairly consistently. I suppose that’s why there’s like a majillion types of ice cream. Not everybody wants orange pineapple every day…

    Do they still make orange pineapple ice cream or is that just relegated to my childhood? I must look this up.
