Or: Literary Crushes, Part Deux
One of the princesses (who shall remain anonymous, unless Heather wants to out herself) said yesterday, about Steve Almond:
“I have mad love for him.”
This made me think of phrases which are best said with a mysterious accent. Think Natasha Fatale.
*I will have the hundred dollar night cream.
* Who is this woman? This Annabelle LaSalle? (referring to one’s own mother.)
I’m sure the princesses can add to the list.
Did she say it like, “I haf maaaad looooove for him?” This is funny.
“Would you like cracked pepper on your salad?”
“Are we out of toilet paper?”
“Just a club soda, with lime.”
“I can’t find my keys.”
“Is that a turkey on the deck?”
“I’m going to the grocery.”
“Have you seen my favorite underpants?”
“I’ve just submitted my essay.”
“A Henry VIII pop-up book would be nice.”
