15 seconds of fame

habe grade bemerkt, daß ich zur zeit bei 6 befreundeten blogs (man findet alle in meiner linkliste) das letzte wort habe ;-)

Hochzeitsnacht

It was customary in those days, for the bride's-man and maiden, and a few select friends, to visit the new married couple after they had retired to rest, and drink a cup to their healths, their happiness, and a numerous posterity. But the laird delighted not in this: he wished to have his jewel to himself; and, slipping away quietly from his jovial party, he retired to his chamber to his beloved and bolted the door. He found her engaged with the writings of the Evangelists, and terribly demure. The laird went up to caress her; but she turned away her head, and spoke of the follies of aged men, and something of the broad way that leadeth to destruction. The laird did not thoroughly comprehend this allusion; but being considerably flustered by drinking, and disposed to take all in good part, he only remarked, as he took off his shoes and stockings, 'that whether the way was broad or narrow, it was time that they were in their bed.'
'Sure, Mr. Colwan, you won't go to bed to-night, at such an important period of your life, without first saying prayers for yourself and me.'
When she said this, the laird had his head down almost to the ground, loosing his shoe-buckle; but when he heard of prayers, on such a night, he raised his face suddenly up, which was all over as flushed and red as a rose, and answered, --
'Prayers, Mistress! Lord help your crazed head, is this a night for prayers?'

[James Hogg. The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner (1824). Ed. John Carey, Oxford University Press: 1999, p. 4]
