Happy June, bookworms. June is a wonderful month. It’s the start of summer and the welcome addition of warmer weather, longer days and general, all-around laziness. In fact, Lil’ Will and Miss Jane just had their first lesson in laziness, which brings us to this sixteenth edition of The Adventures of Lil’ Will and Miss Jane.
Last week, Lil’ Will and Miss Jane were introduced to Memorial Day Weekend. In between honoring those who have died for their country, Lil’ Will and Miss Jane were introduced to the concept of the three-day weekend, which – by it’s very nature – simply begs a person to indulge in laziness. The Librarian Next Door gave them their first lesson: sleeping in. Three-day weekends practically beg you to sleep in, long past the time when you should have gotten up.
The second lesson of three-day weekends: no getting out of bed unless you absolutely must. Which means (at least for The Librarian Next Door), reading in bed! Though perhaps it was more of regular occurrence when Lil’ Will and Miss Jane were alive, today in the LND’s world, it’s considered an indulgence and one that brings a great deal of delight to this blogger. Miss Jane chose, naturally, to read her own works (she does like knowing what Miss Emma Woodhouse is up to), while Lil’ Will’s reading materials were less high-brow.
The third lesson of three-day weekends is the inevitable discovery of a television marathon of sorts. Any particular channel, at any particular time during a three-day weekend, will no doubt be airing episode after episode of one specific series. With a great many channels to choose from, everyone can be happy. Fortunately (or perhaps unfortunately, depending on how you look at it), Lil’ Will and Miss Jane get sucked into watch a House Hunters and House Hunters International marathon with the LND. Lil’ Will became surprisingly adept at guessing which house the family was going to choose. I should take him to Vegas.
This post was inspired by Austenacious’ Jane Austen Action Figure posts. All the credit for the idea goes to them. The Lil’ Will and Miss Jane figures used in this post (and the pictures) are mine.
