New header. Do you guys feel like I change that too much? And can you believe we’ve done SIX “Mystery Quote”‘s already? I can’t. I wonder how many we’ll get to before I finish The Sacrifice. . .
Last week’s quote was from Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. The ‘she’ is Jo, and the ‘he’ was a replacement for ‘the literal Demi’.
I really wanted to keep the ‘literal’ part in, but I don’t think ‘the literal [he]’ is good grammar, even with the he in brackets. 🙂 Anyways, Ellen got the title and the names right. Brownie points for being the only one. 🙂
I decided to do two quotes this time:
“Jeff done tole me,” said [she]. Although she was only seven, she was not afraid of her father. “They been here most a month already. They come in a big wagon. They moved in while you was away, Pa. We watched ’em unload.”
“She don’t like cowmen,” said [she]. “They brag too much. And neither do I.”
Hint: The she's are two different people. I decided 'Jeff' was a common enough name to leave. (Also, let's go ahead and make a rule that you can always guess what's in the brackets. Sound good?)
Do you like my little ‘hint’ box? I’ve known how make boxes that for a while, but I never found a good time to use it. It’s kinda’ fun! 🙂
