Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #137
Welcome to Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts, an original weekly meme hosted here at (un)Conventional Bookviews. So many of the books I read have food or drinks in them, some I’d love to try, and others I’d never ever want to taste… and I thought it could be interesting and fun to share some food and / or drink quotes… If you want to participate, you can grab my logo if you’d like, or you can make your own, but please link back to me in your own post.
The idea of Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts is to share a quote with food or drinks that showed up in a recent read, as well as if it’s something you think you’d like or not. Please share the title of the book it happened in, as well as the character who ate or drank the special little something you discovered between the pages of a good read. Please link up beneath, and visit other bloggers who are participating in Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts as well.
This week’s Thirsty Thursday quote is from Mr. and Mrs. by JA Huss, and it’s from a really funny scene in the story. Nolan has a baby girl, and no idea how he’ll interact with her once she’s older. Five’s youngest girls, though, show him that girls can be anything they want to be! And do anything they want to do. After chasing wild pigs, they invite him to a princess tea-party 🙂 Five is looking for the girls, and spy what happens inside their play house.
Thirsty Thursday Quote:
I go out to the play house to see if they’re there and walk in on… a tea party. But not your typical tea party. I cover my hand to stifle a laugh when I see Nolan sitting on top of a fuzzy pink pillow in a tiny white chair. “What the hell?” “Hey, Five,” Nolan says, cool as ever. “Just having a little tea with your girls.” He brings a tiny tea cup to his lips and sips. “Are you pointing your pinky finger?” I ask. “I need a picture of this.”
“Is it time, Daddy'” Louisa says, jumping up from her seat. “It’s time,” I say, pointing to the ceiling of the play house. “Hear the helicopters? Everyone’s here. Come on, we gotta go.” “I’ll take them, Ivy says, standing up from her place at the table with Bronte in her arms. “I can’t wait to see my parents.” I herd the girls out after Ivy and then I turn to Nolan. “I hear you caught a pig for my girls today.” Nolan points to the corner where said pig is sleeping on top of a pink velvet cushion. “You mean that pig?” “The very one,” I say.
