It's Tuesday Where Are You?
It's Tuesday, Where Are You? is a meme hosted by An Adventure in Reading. The object is to tell us about the book you are reading by describing where you are fictionally. So far, it doesn't look like she's posted yet, but I really enjoyed this last week, so I'm going to forge ahead...
This week I am in a gloomy old manor house. We're only allowed 40 watt bulbs and no exciting music may be played on the 18th Century organ. I'm thirteen years old and for as long as I can remember I've been trying to do in my twin brother. Why, just this morning I sprinkled his cornflakes with a very special little concoction. Too bad he accidentally stuck his elbow in the bowl while reaching for the milk and the cornflakes wound up spread all over the table....But, anyway, please stop by anytime and we'll explore the incredible amount of rooms in my old home. And if you're very good, maybe I'll show you the working guillotine.
