This year for Christmas my dad gave me a copy of Dickens' A Christmas Carol published in 1903. I shall have something for show and tell when I go back to class!
Also, remember when I giggled about Robin Hood being a Peddler of Pottys? I told Dad about this and he went a little crazy with the alliteration. By the time he and I were done, the final product was:
A pretty petty peddler of pottys preambulating perpetuum on the path to perdition
There's a reason I'm an English major.
