Teaser Tuesday (August 9, 2016)

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a rand
om page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Here is my teaser:
""My name's Bud," the man behind the counter said when I asked for a room.  He had a hangdog expression and a smoker's cough.  Tan jowls hung off the sides of his wrinkled face.  When I told him about hiking the PCT, he insisted on washing my clothes.  "I can just throw them in with the sheets and towels, darling.  It ain't nothing at all," he said when I protested."
Wild by Cheryl Strayed, p. 79
