A month ago I posted a super confusing quote from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. I’m now reading Through the Looking-Glass and came across this funny gem yesterday:
'I'm sure I'll take you with pleasure!' the Queen said. 'Twopence a week, and jam every other day.' Alice couldn't help laughing, as she said, 'I don't want you to hire ME--and I don't care for jam.' 'It's very good jam,' said the Queen. 'Well, I don't want any TO-DAY, at any rate.' 'You couldn't have it if you DID want it,' the Queen said. 'The rule is, jam to-morrow and jam yesterday--but never jam to-day.' 'It MUST come sometimes to "jam to-day,"' Alice objected. 'No, it can't,' said the Queen. 'It's jam every OTHER day: to-day isn't any OTHER day, you know.' 'I don't understand you,' said Alice. 'It's dreadfully confusing!' 'That's the effect of living backwards,' the Queen said kindly: 'it always makes one a little giddy at first--' - Through the Looking Glass, Chapter V, Wool and Water
I really have nothing to say about this, other than it made me laugh… like this: hahaha!
