I was reading, or more accurately, having read to me in audiobook form, the novel One of Our Thursdays is Missing by Jasper Fforde. Jasper Fforde is an author I have met once in person, and on numerous occasions corresponded with, though that always seems to end with him politely ignoring me and me feeling a little embarrassed by the whole thing.
I'm a fan.
Anyway, without explaining this extremely difficult to explain book, there is a passing mention of how Madame Bovary is one of the worst name droppers in the entire fictional world. No, I can't explain it, sorry, read the book. But while I was aware that one is supposed to have something of a distasteful disdain for namedroppers and for their attendant character trait when it comes up, I instead had a sudden realization:
I would be a huge name dropper!
So it's a good thing I don't know any famous people.
Except Jasper Fforde.
Did I mention that?
