Quote of the Day

"If you emptied the w-w-water out of your b-b-boots," Aunt Lucy began. She helped Susan to pull off her boots and Susan poured out a stream of muddy, dirty, icy water. Then she put her boots on again and began to lumber back to the house. She had never felt so cold in her life. She began to remember horrible stories of frostbite and wondered how soon she could expect her nose and fingers to drop off. She had no feeling in any of them at all - for all she knew her toes might be off already.

From SUSAN PULLS THE STRINGS, Chapter 7, Chang Breaks the Ice.
