I was reading the new Lisa Kleypas (somewhere around 2 a.m. while I was waiting for a database to download–it was over 2 GB because it hadn’t been compacted.  *sigh*) and found a laugh out loud passage about hedgehogs:

“And he called Medusa a ‘garden pest,’ and faulted me for bringing her to a picnic.”

Amelia smiled at Christopher. “Medusa has been called many worst things around here, including ‘diseased pincushion,’ and ‘perambulating cactus.'”

Love in the Afternoon, Lisa Kleypas

I couldnt’ stop giggling.  Excellent line Ms Kleypas….excellent line.  And I enjoyed the rest of the book too.
