I don't know that my niece Ashley has any knowledge of this, but Lorna Doone and Precious Bane happen to be two of my favorite old classic novels. That is why I got such enjoyment out of this tiny texted conversation today.
First, I received this text from Ashley:
Isn't Lorna Doone the story with the girl who has the harelip?
You wish. That's Precious Bane. I have it if you are still here and want to borrow it. (Only, to be honest, my text didn't exactly say that -- some words were left out and some were spelled wrong altogether because I still don't really know how to text -- but, that is what it tried to say).
I wish? :) That is awesome that you said that. Dang. I guess I do wish actually. I checked out the movie Lorna Doone and kept waiting for harelip, but she never showed.
I love that she waited and waited through all of a movie that has nothing to do with a harelip for the girl with the harelip to make her appearance. And, I love tiny little moments in my day when someone gives me some tiny thing to chuckle about.
