Dolores : Seven Stories about Her
Dolores is different. She heard "Lithium" come on the radio and asked him to turn it up, and then turn it up again until it was really blasting, and she even song along with the chorus, "I love you, I'm not gonna crack," at the top of her little voice, which he bet no other seven-year-olds could come close to doing. Dolores is poised. "Mom, there are four spoons here! I'm really asking! Which one do I use now? God forbid I eat a thick soup with the bouillon spoon or something reserved for thin broths-help me out!" Dolores is spunky. "I want to be a Central cheerleader because I like to make people scream!" Dolores is tough. She was terrified; she was furious. She let her anger burn her fear. She punched him smack in the nose as hard as she could. Shockingly beautiful, quirky, sarcastic, brave, and elusive, Dolores is always, quite simply, Dolores.
