You haven't lived until you've eaten Opium with Thomas de Quincey.

And, quite possibly, you may not live after you've eaten opium with him...!

I wish to have a glass of milk with a person who is not so moral
I wish to have a glass of milk with a person who is not so moral
I wish to have a glass of milk with a person who is not so moral
And convert that person to a life of chastity and morality!

What, I is not into drugs!

I is on PRUDE'S MISSION!!!!!!!!

TimT said...

Further verses for Prude:

I want to go to church with C S Lewis...

I want to talk about good little bunny rabbits with Beatrix Potter...

I want to make the world a better place with Charles Dickens...


(etc, etc)

blue valentine said...

Many apologies to Prude, but:

I want to divorce my wife with Dickens and have a secret relationship with someone more than half my age.

Entirely chaste milk drinkers are hard to come by in the literary panthenon.

nailpolishblues said...

Goodness, all mine involve alcohol or drugs. Pints with Douglas Adams, everything with Hunter S., and some really quite cheap gin with Orwell.

prude said...

That is the whole problem blue valentine *sigh*

We has got to change that.

I has got to write a book!

It must be a literary masterpiece that shall be worthy of standing alongside Miss Beatie Potter and Mr Charlie Dickens!

Ahh the missions I take upon myself.

Any other chaste milk drinkers who would be up to the challenge?

TimT said...

As my Great Uncle Rupert de Melchior used to say, 'Chaste makes waste'.

TimT said...

Just repeating my great uncle's catchphrase, obviously - not *endorsing* it...

blue valentine said...

Alas, literature is a vale of disappointment when one is trying to find chastity and milk-drinking in the one figurehead. The world needs your masterpiece very much, Prude.

nailpolishblues said...

I'm with Tim's uncle (clearly unlike mine who take their chances on anthing with a pulse). I am utterly wasted.

Mitzi G Burger said...

My very unchaste ex-lass drinks milk all the time. Whole glasses of the stuff! I put this down to a protein defficiency resulting from too much exercise.
... I would love to sing a duet with James Joyce (an accomplished tenor.)

TimT said...

Singing with Jimmy Joyce would be sweet, as would playing charades with Austen or Dickens.

prude said...

Thank you for the endorsement blue valentine.

TimT, I is thinking about a Great-Relative of mine whose chant was "Sex is a Hex" and "Chaste, Make Haste!"

It sent me hurrying on my mission.
