something rather fruity

On first wading into the pages of The Indiscretions of Archie, I was afraid I was setting myself up for disappointment. Yet, how could I have ever doubted? Wodehouse has never failed me, what was I thinking? Once I had grasped the characters by the throat, as it were, I had the scene well in hand. Archie gets into oh, so many scrapes but always finds his way back to dry ground somehow. Archie differs from some of P.G.'s other heroes for he is a married man. Yes, you heard rightly. Although, Wodehouse once said that "Marriage isn't a process of prolonging the life of love, but of mummifying the corpse," I'm just not sure he really meant it.
