BookSmarts 012 – The Dickens You Sayon November 24, 2015 at 12:01 am
Words fascinate me. Old phrases we say all the time often make absolutely no sense when you take a minute to ponder them. “All of a sudden…” What the hell is a “sudden?” Is there half of a sudden? A third, maybe? It just occurred to me that if you had the Dickens scared out of you, something like this would happen. I love this gag…I don’t think I captured it as well as I wanted, but I love that Dickens’ feet are still stuck inside the poor guy in a weird, metaphysical way.
