Under-educated

Horrors! I just found out I’ve married a man who admits he has never read Alice in Wonderland (or its sequel)! He said he’s watched the Disney (desecration), as if that counted.

He found a copy in our bookcase and was just starting to rectify his omission when–oh, my ears and whiskers!–I realized it was an edition with the Wrong Illustrations! So I handed him the Authorized Version (which includes both books) and hope he’ll soon be able to discuss the merits and demerits of Jabberwockies, dormice, and talking eggs, quote knowingly “He only does it to annoy because he knows it teases” and caution, “Jam yesterday and jam tomorrow but never jam today!”

  1. Tell Jerry not to feel bad – I’ve never read either of them, either.

  2. Well, that explains a lot. You’re missing a funny bone.
