Lasses


“Sugar and spice and all things nice, that’s what all lasses are made of.”

“Bite your tongue, Vinca!” Pippin chided. “There’s no sugar in you and the spice is pepper.”

“Pippin!”

“’Tis true and you know it, Pervinca Took.” He held up his hand. “And I know, the rest of the rhyme fits me. ‘Snips and snails and puppy dog tails, that’s what lads are made of’”

“Pervinca Boffin, if you please.”

Pippin looked at the babe in her arms, his new niece, Daisy, and smiled. “I’ll grant you, you have added a new bit of sugar to the mix.”
