Quote of the Day: Lewis Carroll

“You alarm me!” said the King. “I feel faint — give me a ham sandwich!”

On which the messenger, to Alice’s great amusement, opened a bag that hung round his neck, and handed a sandwich to the King, who devoured it greedily.

“Another sandwich!” said the King.

      I treated myself to The Annotated Alice last year, but only started reading it now. So yes, I do love Alice. If this were published today, Lewis Carroll would be called a “genre-bending fantasy writer”!
