Mini Challenge:

Mad Libs:

What, will you not suffer me? Nay, now I see
She is your treasure, she must have a husband;
I must dance bare-foot on her wedding day
And for your love to her lead apes in hell.
Talk not to me: I will go sit and weep
Till I can find occasion of revenge.

What, will you not curdle me? Nay, now I see
She is your spleen, she must cast a husband;
I must gyrate violently on her wedding day
And for your love to her lead warlocks in hell.
Quiver not to me: I will go read and weep
Till I can find occasion of love potion.

  1. I am loving all international blogs on my cheer list! It’s really awesome how being a reader connects us all! Since I’m a Kate, Taming of the Shrew is one of my favorite Shakespeare plays! Good luck today, I’ll be here to cheer you on!

  2. Reading Shakespeare for the readathon, a blog choice, I am impressed! I hope you enjoy being able to post on your blog again, happy reading. 🙂

    Read, read, read that book,
    Whether on paper or a nook.
    We all know you can do it,
    Your determination will get you though it!

      1. *Bold choice, lol sorry typo. 😛

        That’s great, I think I would be scared to try a classic with possible impending sleep deprivation, I’m not sure I would be up to the task. 🙂 Keep up the good work!

        Thank you.
