Ella and the Jeweled Dueling Pistols

I have very good news to report today!

Apparently, we are going to inherit a pair of jeweled dueling pistols that belonged to my great-great grandfather who was a important surgeon in the French Army and an artist.

I plan on forcing Pippa to act out history’s most famous duels with me. (The guns will not be loaded, of course.) I think Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton would be a very good place to start.

I’ve been watching this video over and over again as I evilly stroke the cat and plot the demise of important historical figures.

It’s Lin-Manuel Miranda Performs at the White House Poetry Jam doing a rap/song about Alexander Hamilton called “The Hamilton Mixtape.”

And yes, I am indeed eighteen and still up to these shenanigans.

As always, you can also find me on tumblr at http://emleng93.tumblr.com/, if you’re into that kind of thing.
