A Good Book

So I've started reading Something Rotten, and I must say that any book that makes me giggle out loud in bed is well worth reading. There's this part early on where our heroine has arrived home from the book world, and she's brought Hamlet with her. The ordinary greetings ensue. Thursday's mom says, "Pleased to meet you. I'm Mrs. Next, Thursday's mother."

"I have a mother," replied Hamlet gloomily as he bowed politely and kissed my mother's hand. "She shares my uncle's bed."

"They should buy another one in that case," my mother replied, practical as ever. "They do a very good deal at IKEA, I'm told."

It continues from there, but that was enough for a snort and giggle in bed. Ah the joys of a Nextian universe...
