a different take on the beach

June 25, 2009

which fictional character would you want to spend a day at the beach with?  The Washington Post asked that very question of a number of authors from Garrison Keillor to Diana Gabaldon.  one of my favorite quips is from Christopher Moore, mentioned earlier and known for his wacky sense of humor:

The Wife of Bath from Chaucer’s “Canterbury Tales.” She’s got moxie, knows how to “swynke it, swynke it,” and she’s English, so you can watch her crisp in the afternoon sun.

honestly, i am really bad at this game and cannot think of a single character – you?
