Men! They are enemies of our innocence and our peace - they drag us away from our parents' love and our sisters' friendship - they take us body and soul to themselves, and fasten our helpless lives to theirs as they chain up a dog to his kennel. And what does the best of them give us in return?
Very Victorian, wouldn't you say? Find more teasers at Should Be Reading, hosted by Miz B.

Does that come from a speech or an internal thought? Very effective, either way - and maybe a bit bitter, as well. Great teaser!ReplyDelete
