Okay, Take it Easy

Part 2 and 3 of John Henry Days.

"It's just something to pass the time" (131).

This is said by both Alphonse and his wife, Eleanor, about their hobbies. It seems like most of the characters in the novel are preoccupied with something. For J., it's food and finding receipts, Pamela: angsting about how much John Henry ruined her relationship with her father, Alphonse: stamps...and causing chaos, Eleanor: whatever interested her at the moment, One Eye: taking his name off the List, Josie: the ghost. Besides J. and maybe Pamela, the characters take their interests to the extreme such as Josie having the urge to knock on someone's door at 3am just to tell them about the ghost.

Crazy people I tell you...
