: : Oh Lainey, I don't begrudge you a birthright! I only advise Pat to perhaps reconsider claiming a common birthright! To do so would require Pat to adopt the same 215 personalities. Oh well, maybe you two could get your Ridiline on a family group rate, huh?
: You've done it! Now I understand why Alice Munro appears to be in such a stupor. She's probably been administered an overdose of Ritalin by big sister, Cora, who likes to play nurse.
: Think about it ... Alice was a bit hyper in the beginning. She practically chewed Duncan's ear off with her rapid fire chat-chat-chat. The script describes her as "effervescent" - THAT'S an understatement - & says poor Duncan is "taken aback by her enthusiasm" - a polite way of saying he was very nervous about traveling the George Road with Miss motor mouth. This was Alice's way of cramming in all the dialogue she could get in, I guess.
: "We leave in the morning I shan't sleep tonight what an adventure I can't wait to see papa have you seen the red man?"
: All that before Cora could pour Duncan a cup of tea!
: Sooooo ... Cora drugged hyper Alice. It was in the tea, see?
: From that moment Alice hardly uttered a sound, she was semi-comatose, had that blank stare ... the imbalance probably contributed to her cliff death too.
YES! YES! That must have been it! Good job Lainey that really does tie it all together.
: Boy. I hope Cora feels very bad about what she did. The wi-itch.
: Thanks, Bill! I couldn't have solved this without your Ritalin tip off.
You're the one who did the perceptive analysis. Musta forgotten to take YOUR Ritalin today, eh? We'll have to have Rich take it out of your pillbox more often!
: PS It's only 213 personalities, thank you very much.
Oh well! That makes ALL the difference! Only 213? You are relatively normal then, and definitely under the max allowable for LOTM fanatics and Mohicanpress visitors! Well under the max number before you are considered abnormal (or should I say abGnome-al) here!
