Sienna and Arista Discover Pride and Prejudice
Sienna: Huh, it looks like the human left one of her books out. “Pride and Prejudice”… Oh! This is that story she’s always going on about! With the pretty Regency era dresses and sassy Bennett sisters! Hmmm… Hey, Arista!
– – –
Arista: …So, why are we wearing these again?
Sienna: To get the full effect of the story! C’mon, it’ll be fun!
Arista: This dress is pretty comfortable… Okay, okay, let’s see what all this Pride and Prejudice business is about.
– – –
Arista: What the heck! Take a hint, Mr. Collins! She’s clearly NOT interested!
Sienna: And he’s known her for all of what, a day?!
Arista: “I know you couldn’t possibly be rejecting my marriage proposal. LADY CATHERINE DE BOURGH says I’m amazing. Plus, I get your house someday. And you might not get another offer. It’s a done deal, basically.”
Sienna: Ugh…What a creeper!
– – –
Arista: You, too, Mr. Darcy?! Does NO ONE in this book know how to propose to someone without insulting them first?!
Sienna: “So I know you’re like THE BOTTOM of the barrel society-wise, but you give me ALL THE FEELS, so I’m willing to overlook your lowness and marry you. Awesome, right? “
Arista: “What?! You’re rejecting my beautiful proposal?! How can this be?!”
Sienna: Go Lizzy! You set that fool straight!
– – –
Arista: OK, now that we’ve skimmed through the book, it’s movie time!
Sienna: Pride and Prejudice followed by Austenland, coming up!
Arista: Let’s see how much of a creeper Mr. Collins is in the movies…
– The End –
My husband says I watch too much Pride and Prejudice. He’s probably right – I can practically recite the movie. I just really love Elizabeth Bennett and her ability to articulate so perfectly what everyone’s thinking at those key moments. “Guess what, I’m rejecting you and this is why.” “I don’t care if you’re ‘above’ me, stay out of my business.” Ah, so good. I wish I was better at that. Movie and mini series-wise, I know everyone loves the BBC version, but my favorite’s still the 2005 movie. It’s easily one of my favorite movies of all time.
