Thanks for posting. When I checked earlier I read that passage and
didn't see the word "grools" in it. I'll check again tonight, though,
now that I know exactly where to look.

Which edition of the book are you reading? I wonder if it's a misprint?


PS Thanks for getting me to pick up _Catcher_ again. I'm tempted to
reread it out of order...just so I can enjoy each chapter on its own.
 Closely reading chapter ten was a riot....
