Sad Fun

17 May

Here is your daily dose of oxymoronicism.  That’s probably a word, right?

In Chapter 5 of Book One Seldon has appeared at Bellomont, and Lily has begun to view all her friends in a new light, and it’s not all that flattering.  But apparently the shadows are still playing tricks on Gus.

“I say, do look at her,”  he exclaimed, turning to Miss Bart with lugubrious merriment – “I beg your pardon, but do just look at my wife making a foot of that poor devil over there!”


And either way you slice his emotion, I just don’t think it’s a nice way to react to your wive’s behavior.
