Life 101

Elizabeth and I were watching Pride and Prejudice the other night and we go to the part where Lydia is going off to Brighton with Colonel Forster's wife to be her particular companion. Her mother tells her something along the lines of take every opportunity to have as much fun as possible.

Elizabeth pipes up rather indignantly, "Well, that is terrible advice! That is like saying, 'Just have fun but don't worry about anything having fun is the most important thing there is!' "

When watching the movie before we have talked about what silly girls the younger Bennett sisters are, and Jon and I have talked about how we hope our girls are not "Lydias." I think Elizabeth is off to a good start!
