"I was blow-drying my hands when our charming beekeeper burst into the loo, waving a pistol and demanding his money, his wallet, and an apology, the latter of which I thought was a nice touch coming from a douchebag. I was slightly terrified as I always am when I see a gun, but I knew not to look like I was frightened or amused. When you grow up with a drug-addicted twin brother and spend too much of your time dragging him out of crack houses, you get unwisely inured to the casual display of handguns and to the blundering jerkoffs who use them."

I Don’t Like Where This Is Going, by John Dufresne (copyright 2016; quote is from pages 114-115 of the W. W. Norton & Company trade paperback edition, 2017).
