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.
