Waiting for Goodbye

“What I was really hanging around for,
I was trying to feel some kind of a good-by.
I mean I’ve left schools and places
I didn’t even know I was leaving them.
I hate that. I don’t care if it’s a sad good-by or a bad good-by,
but when I leave a place I like to know I’m leaving it.
If you don’t, you feel even worse.”

J. D. Salinger, 1919-2010
The Catcher in the Rye, Chapter 1
