This week's theme is Feeling (Happiness, Sadness, Surprise, etc).

Here's mine from Strong Poison by Dorothy L Sayers (p 56):

"What eloquence!" said Parker, unimpressed. "Anybody would think you'd gone goopy over the girl."

"That's a damned friendly way to talk," said Wimsey, bitterly. "When you went off the deep end about my sister, I may have been unsympathetic--I daresay I was--but I swear I didn't dance on your tenderest feelings and call your manly devotion 'going goopy over a girl.' I don't know where you pick up such expressions, as the clergyman's wife said to the parrot. 'Goopy,' indeed!" I never heard anything so vulgar!"

Lovely snippet. I need to find me another Peter Wimsey mistery, since I've only read one so far...

"Goopy" makes me laugh. Of course, it's really vulgar. Great Themer.
