king!!!!!!!

i just wanted to take a moment to look at this line from the book:

because while i was reading it really stuck out to me for more than one reason. firstly, i think it was odd the way that the line was just dropped in there, like no context or explanation just…there. secondly, and i should’ve mentioned this earlier, this is richie tozier we’re talking about (adult richie). he seems to be relatively successful and living it up as “records” yet here this line…it’s so sad to me idk

anyways long story short richie deserves the world and is not just some obnoxious asshole there for comic relief Thanks

(if you have any thoughts or comments plz tell me)
