The Friday 56 is a bookish meme hosted by Freda’s Voice.

Today’s sentence comes from Framley Parsonage by Anthony Trollope.
“The poor lecturer, as he seated himself, made some remark such as those he had been making for the last two days-for out of a full heart the mouth speaketh. But he spoke to an impatient listener. ‘D— the South Sea Islanders,’ said Mr. Sowerby. ‘You’ll have it all your own way in a few minutes, like a bull in a china-shop; but for Heaven’s sake let us have a little peace till that time comes.’ “
For some reason I stifled a laugh….
Very curious. The lecturer might be a bit pompous…lol
Here’s MY FRIDAY MEMES POST
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
I don’t know whether to feel sorry for the lecturer or the listener. It is terrible when no one listens, but some people really need to shut up once in a while! Hop on over to my Friday Post if you have the time! Hope you have a great weekend!
