Pride & Prejudice & Memory Loss
Number three AND number four of my homages to Jane Austen and my quest to have certain incomparable truths become universally acknowledged.
It’s Thursday, but here’s my back-filled one for Wednesday:
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that just when one believes one can remember to post to one’s blog every day in a week, one will have a crazy, busy, and all-around mind-losing day, and forget all about posting to one’s blog of a Wednesday afternoon, and for that, gentle readers, I apologize.
And here’s the one for today:
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that the little sibling who was devoutly wished for, will become the bane of one’s existence once said little sibling becomes old enough to talk, take one’s toys, and have his or her own opinion on how the world should work.
“IT is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.” (Pride & Prejudice)
Gentle reader: nothing would give me, your humble servant, greater pleasure than reading your own truths in the comment area that follows.
