Quotable - literary irritation

I come from a family where the only emotion
respectable to show is irritation.
In some this tendency produces hives,
in others literature, in me both.

~ Flannery O'Connor, born today

i like that....and my family slightly resembles that...except no one wrote, we just produced silence. but it worked for us.
we were very successful at being irritatingly silent.
