I am reading the book The Catcher in the Rye by J.d Salinger the chapter 5 of the book talks about Holden eating dinner at the dining hall with his friends, then they all get ready to go on the bus and when everyone is getting ready holden goes outside and makes a snowball

It says” while he was doing it, I went over to my window and opened it and packed a snowball with my bare hands. The snow was very good for packing. I didn’t throw it at anything, though I started to throw it at a car that was parked across the street I changed my mind.” (pg.41)

When I read this part in the book I thought about last winter when I and my friend were all packing snow with our hands and throwing it at cars for fun, and also when we got into trouble with the security around the mall for throwing it at a moving car.
