Passage of the Day – The Visitor

And how I despise the average citizen, who settles himself down upon one tiny spot of land with one asinine woman, to breed and stew and rot in that condition unto his life’s end. And always with the same woman! I simply cannot believe that any man in his senses would put up with just one female day after day and year after year. Some of them, of course, don’t. But millions pretend they do.

Needless to say we completely agree with Dahl’s sentiments concerning the distaff sex. 😉

By the way, The Visitor is another fine story by Dahl.

Highly recommended, guys.
