Emily has been reading “Manon Lescaut” – in the original French, of course – and giving us regular updates on the story:

(looking up from book) “Wow! Manon cheated already, and I’m only on page 28!

(Shakes head and returns to reading, mumbling under her breath) There’s 200 pages in this book. She must have a lot more screwing up to do.”

My kid, the comedienne.
