In youth, it was a way I had
To do my best to please,
And change, with every passing lad, To suit his theories.
But now I know the things I know, And do the things I do;
And if you do not like me so, To hell, my love, with you!
–Indian Summer by Dorothy Parker, excerpt from Candy Jernigan’s 1983 diary
