Teaser Tuesday


Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Should be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
•Grab your current read
•Open to a random page

•Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
•BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
•Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

As You Like It (No Fear Shakespeare)

In this scene Rosalind, disguised as as a young man, is talking to her cousin, Celia, who is disguised as her sister. Celia has just revealed to Rosalind that Orlando, whom Rosalind is smitten with, is author of the love notes that were hung throughout the forest. Here is Rosalind's response:
Alas the day, what shall I do with my doublet and hose? What did he when thou saw'st him? What said he? How looked he? Wherein went he? What makes him here? Did he ask for me? Where remains he? How parted he with thee? And when shalt thou see him again? Answer me in one word. Act 3, Scene 2
I know it is more than two sentences, but I this part really made me laugh. I can think of more than one occasion that I have been questioned in almost the same manner or asked the same questions myself.
