Hilarious exchange of the morning

Joannie (reading her Jane Austen calendar): “To be fond of dancing was a certain step towards falling in love.”  It’s from Pride and Prejudice.

Liza (who has never read Jane Austen): I’m not fond of dancing.

(Joannie comments about how in Austen’s time that was pretty much your only chance of talking to a guy)

Liza: I would sit on the side with my knitting.  Or read a book.

Joannie: There was a character in Pride and Prejudice that did that.  She was weird.

Liza: Did she set the house on fire?

Joannie:  Wrong book. Wrong author.

    Yes, Austen’s men were the least likely to have insane wives locked in back rooms. Maybe that is why Charlotte Bronte didn’t like her? 😉
