On showing off.

S: Check this out: http://www.time.com/time/2005/100books/the_complete_list.html. This makes zero sense. It says English-language novels, but Lolita’s on it.

C: Lolita is an English language book.

S: What! Nabokov is a Russian! Did he write it in English?

C: I know. He has an EXPERT knowledge of languages. And he wants you to know it when you read the book too.

S: Wow. I never knew! I always figured Lolita was translated from the Russian.

C: Nope, it takes place in America and everything!

S: What! So weird. What a show-off, that Nabokov.

C: I KNOW! That’s why I have problems!!
