I started The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and was intrigued by a hilarious quote:

The book is narrated by a man called Gilbert (four and twenty) who has a younger brother whose named is Fergus.  Fergus thinks he’s hilarious. (“Preposterous!!!” shrieked Fergus, mocking his sister, the three exclamation points are there!) He says something, and this follows:

“But if he intended the speech to be hailed as a master-stroke of wit, he signally failed, for nobody laughed. However, He was not much disconcerted at that; for when he had taken a mouthful of bread and butter, and was about to swallow a gulp of tea, the humour of the thing burst upon him with such irresistible force, that he was obliged to jump up from the table and rush snorting and choking from the room, and, a minute after, was heard screaming in fearful agony in the garden.”

Obliged to go screaming in fearful agony in the garden? baha.

Sounds like something I would do…

These pictures are from the rain yesterday. You can see how it was REALLY cold and where I ran into the garage. haha.
