Shantih. Shantih. Shantih.

Craig had to make a quiz for the younger Boy Scouts, and tested it out on his sister.

Since they aren't in the same literature classes, he didn't think her answer was funny.

But I did.

Clever girl.

It is more than merely amusing, It is heartening to find that out of the Wasteland of modern educational practice , there does yet emerge a lilac in spring. Hold on Marie, Marie hold on tight to all that you have learned.

And it ties in to your specialty: "“My nerves are bad to-night."

Sorry, my AP English teacher was nuts for the poem and when I got to college, a professor was even nuttier about it.

Watch out Grumpy -- Marie sounds like the pick of the litter. Who knows what you and Nurse Grumpy have unleashed!

My guess - Organ Donor Month!
And, I am glad your son is a Scout.

Absolutely over the moon to see that another Marie has at least a nodding acquaintance with The Waste Land. Marie, Marie, hold on tight!
