25 Days of Pride and Prejudice, Day 10: My Brain Is Melting

Day 10. I made the mistake of trying to leave my house to be sociable. I should have known better. The only social situation I recognize anymore is the Meryton Assembly or the Netherfield Ball. If I’m not talking to Mr. Darcy, who am I talking to? Where is Charlotte with her sage wisdom, or Lizzy with her quick wit?

I have no life. I have only Pride & Prejudice.

What follows is an unfaithful transcript of my Saturday night out with a friend:



 

Friend: You look cute!

Me: Do these pleasing attentions proceed from the impulse of the moment, or are they the result of previous study?

Friend: What are you doing, are you quoting something?

Me: So this is your opinion of me. Thank you for explaining so fully.

 


 

Friend: You should give that guy your number.

Me: Me: I do not have the talent of conversing easily with people I have never met before.

Friend: But he’s cute!

Me: Thoroughly tolerable, I dare say, but not handsome enough to tempt me.

Friend: What are you talking about, he’s handsome.

Me: Only the deepest love will persuade me into matrimony, which is why I will end up an old maid.

Friend: …You’re still quoting something aren’t you?

 


Friend: Want to finish my dessert?

Me: You are too generous to trifle with me.

Friend: Hm no, I don’t think this is technically a trifle.

 


 

Bartender: What’ll it be ladies?

Friend: No thanks, I’ve had enough.

Me: Come on, I’m getting another.

Friend: Fiiiine.

Me: Easily persuaded is she not?

Bartender: …what?

Friend: Ignore her.

 


 

Friend: Hey come here.

Me: Has the pig escaped again?

Friend: What? No, I wanted you to see this girl’s outfit.

Me: She looks positively medieval.

Friend: Well now that’s just harsh.

 


 

Me: If every man in the room does not end the evening in love with you then I am no judge of beauty.

Friend: Good grief, woman. Your skills in the art of matchmaking are positively occult.

Me: WHAAAAAAT!!!

Friend: Bitch, I’ve seen Pride & Prejudice too.

  1. Lmao! I quote to my daughter all the time, but she knows what I’m saying and does it back. This is the best blog I’ve ever read.

  2. A gentle suggestion for a future viewing: Is Jane really that sweet? I mean, who truly can be within that family. Can the argument be made that she is ‘simple’ or ‘slow’? The same can be said for Bingley. Why else would everyone be so protective of him.
