I'd forgotten how funny Chance could be and why this was my favorite series for so many years. ahh Mircea and Pritkin you funny buggers.
'Mircea was regarding him [Pritkin] the way a good housewife looks at a bug crawling across her newly cleaned kitchen floor.'
it's even funnier because i now know their personalities so well, i've read these books so many times (though not for at least a yr or so now) re-reading this series again (for the 5th? time now was the best idea - i use to re-read the books every time a new one came out, I'm currently two behind)
