“people come on Sunday and wait to get fed, uncles and aunts… and they all say the same dumb things, ‘how big you are! how fat you’ve got!…you look so good we can eat you up!’ and in fact we knew they would. The only entertainment was watching their bloodshot eyes, how bad their teeth were…huge nose and the hair curling out of the nose, the weird mole on the side of the head”
Maurice Sendak
