Blithe Spirit

My favorite line from the world of theatre occurs in the play “Blithe Spirit” by Noel Coward.  Although I first heard this line of dialogue over 20 years ago – it is still funny.  I love the image it evokes. 

In the play, Charles, a novelist,  is scolded by his wife for his bad behavior at a dinner party.

 Charles retorts dryly, “Would you like me to writhe at your feet in a frenzy of self-abasement?”
