Crazy relatives

Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest -- Drama as Literature (EL 250)

Algernon: ...To begin with, I dined there on Monday, and once a week is quite enough to dine with one's own relations.


I really liked this quote because I could realy relate to it. However, for me once a year is enough to dine with some of my crazier relatives. I liked how this play had so many puns and this was just one of the many I found myself laughing out loud about.

Wilde really loves language.

WOW I know exactly how you feel. I feel the same way about my family. Actually, sometimes I think that every other year is enough to dine with some of my relatives. It takes alot of energy sometimes, way more than it should to hang out with my family!

You know, you can choose your friends....but not your family....
