If you give a teen a Jane Austen classic book… they will be dying to know more!
If you give a teen (or a group of them) a Jane Austen classic book, they will be dying to know more.
And if they are dying to know more, they will find a Janeite to tell them more.
And if a Janeite tells them more, they will suggest watching Jane Austen movies with the Janeite.
And when said Janeite agrees, they will make an event of it.
And when they make an event of it, they will bring food. And since it will be over Christmas break, many, many cookies will be involved, making said Janeite very happy.
And when said Janeite is very happy, she will talk a great deal about all things Regency and Austen in the movies.
And while said teens are watching said movie, the Janeite’s cats will come to visit, receiving many pets and cuddles.
And when said cats receive pets and cuddles, they will nap nearby.
And when they nap, they are cute. Cute enough that said teens might just prefer them to Colin Firth.
(No, I did not just say that, did I?)
And when Colin Firth is mentioned they must talk about the famous wet shirt scene and the unmentionable related there-in.
And when unmentionables are mentioned, everyone gets silly and giggly.
And when everyone gets silly and giggly, all would like it to continue, so, said Janeite must recommend another Jane Austen classic book.
And when you give a teen a Jane Austen classic book….
Many thanks to my son’s AP English buddies for making this Christmas break a wonderful and memorable one. What can possibly compare to spending two evenings in the company of a group wanting to discuss all the ins and outs of Pride and Prejudice and even took notes during the whole thing! You guys are awesome!
