“My earnest hope is that the entire remainder of my existence will be one round of unruffled monotony.” PG Wodehouse in his Thank You, Jeeves.
Belov’d and I are big fans of Jeeves and Wooster. He would find them rather entertaining- and would pause them occasionally to say “and this is why you lost the empire!”. Though the Google Book preview only allowed for the single page, here, it was difficult to see who actually said it. We put together our collective PG Wodehouse knowledge, and we think it was Fink-Nottle.
There is something to be said about living in peaceful monotony. Although dull, the predictability of it does give you that peace of mind. Belov’d will shortly be coming out of his probation at work, and I’ll be a couple of months after. Though not really that eventful, it does give the transition from newbie to ‘part of the furniture’.
