To marmalade (vb)

To marmalade (vb)

In the absence of any marmalade-related news today, here instead is a helping of P G Wodehouse.

'I marmaladed a slice of toast with something of a flourish, and I don't suppose I have ever come much closer to saying "Tra-la-la" as I did the lathering, for I was feeling in mid-season form this morning. God, as I once heard Jeeves put it, was in His heaven and all right with the world. (He added, I remember, some guff about larks and snails, but that is a side issue and need not detain us.)'
From Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves

If this is the sort of thing that amuses you, you can get a daily dose of Wodehouse here. If in dire need, just keep clicking 'Refresh' - it throws up a fresh quote each time. Very cheering.

Wodehouse always cheers me up. Must read the brand-new volume: P.G. Wodehouse: A Life in Letters
