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.

  1. Don’t try Abe Lincoln. When he was challenged he chose broadswords, and when the other guy saw this giant guy with hugely long arms whipping this huge sword around he was ready to just accept an apology from Abe, who was covering for Mary Todd and a girlfriend who wrote the nasty article in a paper.

    Andy Jackson is another bad choice because he killed a mess of people duelling.
