Over time, I’d seemed to shed friends as a snake does skins. They tell me it’s natural. Things change. People change. They get married. They have kids. They get divorced. They stop smoking. They take up golf. Some die. I’d accelerated the shedding process by becoming a cop, not the most popular career choice for a college student in the late sixties. Though cops were no longer on the top of everyone’s shit list, friendships are hard to rekindle. Both parties need to be up for the awkwardness of it all. More often than not, it was like a one-armed man trying to light a fire with two sticks.

–Moe Prager, from Redemption Street

Today’s quote is from Redemption Street, the second book in the series.
