“Young women always liked to shoot off quips before their guns.
Older women knew better.”
I don’t have a lot of exposition on this one. It’s that fantastic. Succinct, to the point and now that I’m *ahem* potential qualified as “older,” I can look back and laugh at all the stupid shit I did when I was in my 20’s and early 30’s, the times I made things more dramatic than they needed to be, or more difficult. The many, many times I opened my pie hole when I should have kept it shut. Except for pie. Things I should have said yes to or no to. Things I definitely shouldn’t have ingested (Popov anyone? Boone’s?) We all idiots when we’re young and cocky and invincible. Which is humiliating but also kind of fun. These lines took me back to the kind of fun bits and flashed me back to the stupid bits with a giggle.
Also, Nyx kicks ass and everyone should read the Bel Dame Apocrypha.
