All you would need for that, Clarice, is a mirror.
11.This is really going to hurt.
12.What is worst about this humiliation, Clarice? Is it how your failure will reflect on your mommy and daddy? Is your worst fear that people will now and forever believe…they were indeed just good old trailer-camp…tornado-bait white trash…and that perhaps you are too?
