Conversations With My Sister: Part Three

Over the past few weeks I’ve shared some recent conversations with my sister because I thought they were funny. Here, we have Part Three. Enjoy.

(Fair warning, slightly salty language ahead…)

Beth: so I watched 4 different versions of the St. Crispin’s day speech yesterday. 2/4 made me cry. fucking Shakespeare

Sister: oh?

B: Brannagh and Hiddles

S: Shakespeare was evil in the same way that Joss Whedon is evil. They just use their powers in slightly different ways.

B: Yes. Brannagh’s also made me want to ride to war

S: Ole Kenneth roused you to arms, did he?

B: DUDE. You should watch that and see if YOU don’t want to go fight for King harry
Henry V is one of my fav plays. there is SO MUCH Shakespeare in my new book. I think you and I are the only people who will like it.

S: THERE ARE OTHER PEOPLE LIKE US.

B: like two. and I went to Berkeley with both of them.

S: There are more!! There must be. They’re just too well educated and wise to make a fuss about it.

B: well I’m doing my part to bring the sexy back by putting Shakespeare in my smexy book. All the wonderful things I do with Shakespeare in this book! (Sounds like I’m writing Shakespeare slash, doesn’t it?)
