“Rose, Violette and Mauve were knitting. From time to time, Rose (or Violette, or Mauve) would put her knitting on her lap, cast a half-amused, half-severe glance at her sisters’ work and say: “You’re knitting too loose” or: “I’m glad Momma didn’t give me that colour yarn!” or then again, she might say nothing at all. If she was inactive for too long, one of her sisters would look at her. “Finish your bootie, then you can daydream.” And Rose (or Violette, or Mauve) would sigh discreetly and take up her work again.”
― The Fat Woman Next Door Is Pregnant by Michel Tremblay, translated by Sheila Fischman.
