Pride & Prejudice & Daddy Time
Number five of my homages to Jane Austen and my quest to have certain incomparable truths become universally acknowledged.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that if one leaves one’s husband home with one’s children while going to shop for groceries and run other sundry errands, one will receive no fewer than ten phone calls while one is out: asking where various items in the house are located, when one will be home from said errands, and what types of junk food will one be purchasing to bring home to children who seem to be, curiously, starving to death.
“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.
