PLUM Panacea

Sushmita Sen Gupta says "I came across this line when still a wee bairn in pigtails and promptly adopted it as my Motto For Ever : "Don't take life too seriously. You'll never get out of it alive." And loving the words and works of Wodehouse helps you enormously in this noble endeavour. Steeped in Plum's world, one can always see the funny side of things, ignore irritants and classify all sorts of problems as too unimportant to agonise over. As long as the Empress gets her 58,000 calories per day, as long as Bertie gets his calories from Anatole's culinary masterpieces, as long as Psmith's monocle is shining happily, all's well with the world. Tinkerty tonk."

Brilliant! :-) Emphasis mine. Sushmita is a PLUM fan like yours truly and is a part of the Celebrating P G Wodehouse community on Ning.

One has to be really serious to remain non-serious about life ! :)
