I’ve been wondering

05 Aug

I have for you today three stupid questions for the price of one.

Part I, chapter 3

What happened to Raskolnokov’s father?

In Mrs. Raskolnikov’s letter she writes, “Rodya, you are everything to us–our one hope, our one consolation.”
Doesn’t it sound like she’s describing Jesus and not her questionably sane son who’s pondering murder?

What’s up with Mrs. Rask closing her lengthy letter with “Yours till death”?
Now that’s the kind of closing that just gives a child a warm, fuzzy feeling, isn’t it?

    That’s what I say tommy kids every night as I tuck them in, ” Nighty- night. I’m yours till death. Sleep tight.”

      Oh! So that’s why my kid’s have been asking me what’s wrong with you ever since we got back from your house.

      Are extra nightlights and teddy bears needed in your part of the US?

    Stacy, it’s fun having you on board. Are you just joining us for C&P, or will it be more long term?

    Good questions Christina. I agree the whole “you are everything to us–our one hope, our one consolation” thing was a bit disconcerting.

      Wouldn’t want to put extra pressure on the unstable family member.

      Thanks! I have an interest in Anna Kareninininina, and I downloaded it to my iPad over a year ago, so I really have no good excuse (except for the fact that I now work full time – boo) to forgo the next reading task. We’ll see…..

    I’ve been wondering about his father, too. Also, I’ve been wondering about Michael Phelps’ father, do you have any insight on that?

    Yes. Jesus. I knew it made me think of somebody.

      I did quickly search for a Bible ref, but didn’t have much luck.
