“Is not her name Musichetta?”

“She is a superb girl, very literary, with tiny feet, little hands, no I mean really they’re tiny, especially compared with her sleeves, her sleeves are basically this wide, you wouldn’t believe it.  Sometimes she has the puffy round sleeves and sometimes she has those ones with complicated shelf arrangements sticking out in two or three layers that are dropped way down to really emphasize the droopy slope of her shoulders.  You basically can’t guess how her arms might be put together at all, I mean, there’s like hardly any suggestion of actual human anatomy. And she is white and dimpled, with the eyes of a fortune-teller. I am wild over her.”

– Joly, The Back Room of the Café Musain
