Being a Woman
This time my 3 Days have got stretched out over more than a couple of days ! But it’s such an interesting activity that I didn’t want to leave it unfinished. My earlier two quotes were by the irrepressible Erma Bombeck whose witty take on family and life has seen me through many a time when the blues would descend and smother me.
Another author who makes me laugh out loud is P G Wodehouse . His immortal characters, Bertie Wooster and his valet Mr.Jeeves are two of the most adorable fictional characters I’ve come across. I’ve often wondered about how incredible it would have been if both the afore-mentioned gentlemen were to end up as my neighbours. The fact that they were the creations of Mr Wodehouse’s extremely vivid imagination didn’t faze me at all. Regular readers of P G Wodehouse will be familiar with the formidable aunts of Bertie Wooster, whom he is mortally scared of. Today’s quote is by one of these admirable ladies, Aunt Dahlia, who incidentally is not the scariest of the lot .
I never cease to marvel at Mr Wodehouse’s command over the language and the imagery he conjures up with mere words.
