Telling him what exactly? How do you take the stupid daily details that don’t mean anything at all, like yesterday’s math test and the way she just blanked out and couldn’t think at all, and the new coffee Gram is trying out in the café, and what’s in the news about the war and what’s not in the news about the war; how is she supposed to pretend that this is all fine and normal and she can handle it when . . Suddenly she’s angry; she’s so angry so quickly she feels like her head could come off.
She wishes she knew what to say, but every phrase that pops into her head sounds stupid or childish. And Matt’s not one for big gestures or big speeches, and he’s definitely not one for spilling his guts at the Greyhound station surrounded by strangers. Last night Matt gave Alice a map of the Middle East. They put it up on her wall together and put pins in where he’s supposed to be going. Not that anybody knows for sure. Alice wonders how anybody can get things done when nobody knows anything for sure.
