My daughter and I love all things Pride and Prejudice—the BBC long version (our favorite), the Matthew MacFadyen version, the soundtrack, the novel, etc.
Last night, during our 23,432,029th viewing of ”Pride and Prejudice” (the BBC version), I said, “I love those letters they write to each other. Love them, though, you know, it does take AGES to get any news. A cell phone would’ve helped.”
My 12-year-old daughter replied, “Yeah, and it would’ve been so much easier to find Lydia. You know she would’ve done a hundred selfies on Instagram. ‘Here I am with Wickie at our honeymoon resort.’ ‘Wickie and I in London!’”
We started laughing so hard as she imitated what that would look like. Then, between giggles, she said, “I need to make that into a cartoon.”
So, with her permission, I am posting the wonderful cartoon she drew. (She never lets me post her cartoons—and she has oodles of them!)
