    If you have kids, Holly, they’ll call J.K. Rowling and/or Stephanie Meyer an antique.

    Wait till she finds out about the content of Shakespeare’s plays and stories. That will entice her.

    Antiques are old nice things … old things that are not nice is what Stephanie Meyer is…

    You guys seriously need to read The Wednesday Wars. Especially the part where Holling is practicing Caliban’s curses. I still think Romeo and Juliet were idiots, even if Holling did manage to find sense in that play.

    What about that play they refuse to let hs students read: “Taming of the Shrew”. “My tongue in your tail? Forsooth, dear Kate, I am a gentleman!”

    I say start them off with some of his comedies then move on to the dramas.

    Not the censored ones I got in school. They take out most of the good stuff like any prurient hating neo-Puritan.

    “Antigone” was antagonistic to me in HS. Not my cup of tea when I was reading the likes of Heinlein & Asimov.

    No wonder they said you were “spacey”! (SNERK!)

    “I still think Romeo and Juliet were idiots,…”


    They were young and in love, which I grant you amounts to much the same thing.


    This is the very ecstasy of love,
    Whose violent property fordoes itself
    And leads the will to desperate undertakings
    As oft as any passion under heaven
    That does afflict our natures; … and
    truly in my youth I suffered much extremity for
    love; very near this.

    (OK, that’s from another play, but still…)


    I’ve never really understood why some people are so hard on those crazy kids. How do you think Holly would react if Val gave her strict orders to stay away from her boy-of-the-hour? (Let alone tried to marry her off to some old stranger.) Granted, Holly probably wouldn’t go so far as to fake her death (and then NOT fake it), but if you don’t think teenage broken hearts sometimes lead to self-destructive behavior you haven’t been paying attention.
