A couple weeks ago, fellow WIPpeteer Eden Mabee went digging after the origins of WIPpet Wednesday. Due to her prompting, I did a little research. I couldn’t remember the exact details of how or when, except that I stumbled upon it via the incredible Krista Walsh. Coming up with concrete answers took a trip in the Wayback machine . . .
So, in honor of going back in time . . . um . . . I got nothing for that. Sorry folks. Instead, for the 24th of July, I give you 7 letters from page 24 of The First House:
“It was . . . em”
Just kidding! How about 24 paragraphs from page 24 instead? Wait!! I can’t do that because I’d be giving away spoilers. Um . . . all right, settle down, I’ll figure something out. Here then, 7 lines from page 24 of The First House. A bit of witty dialogue between the brothers and an old *cough* friend *cough*.
“You should have let me talk to him,” Grady said, following Quinn’s thoughts.
“Your method of talking tends to be a bit final.”
“Nonsense. I’ve been talking to Somman here for most of the morning. He’s not dead.”
“A blessing, to be sure,” Somman said.
“Meringer didn’t question you as to the box’s contents when you gave it to him?” Quinn asked.
There you have it. Happy WIPpeteering Wednesday!
