wonderful collection.

Jerome K Jerome is as always a master. he makes you laugh while making you think. the stories i listed on the cover. evergreen: an ode to steadfast people, with interesting insights into training bulldods😂 clocks: on the quirks of such instruments, (if you think the topic is outdated I'll have you know our two cell phones tell a slightly different times!) tea kettles: yep, j can make this into an interesting topic! a pathetic story: a writer's problems writing such. a new utopia: a must read for anyone dabbling with socialistic notions, a scarier story than all the ghost stories. dreams: legs are disturbing people from getting to their seats in the theater so why not check them in, and other uninteresting nightly experiences.😂🤣😅
