  1. That’s a really good book.

    Nitpick: I’m not clear on when Proverbs says that a wife should keep servants busy. There’s stuff in Proverbs about keeping servants busy, but Proverbs 31 is more about the wife keeping busy, and making sure that the entire household is fed and clothed, as well as doing her own business enterprises, even if she has to be up making breakfast and the day’s food, when nobody else is up. Proverbs 31:27 is about the closest I see to this.

    Now, obviously it would often be the wife commanding the servants and keeping them busy. So it’s not wrong.

    And it’s possible that there’s another translation circulating that I don’t know about, or there is some literary allusion.

    Heh! I’m super-nitpicky, so please don’t let it bother you. As a conversation it is totally convincing.

    • Proverbs 31:15. “She rises while it is yet night and provides food for her household and tasks for her maidens.” I’ve seen some translations use “handmaidens,” or “maid servants.” The Tanakh has “and daily fare for her maids.”

  2. Oh, and I really hope we someday find out more about Leila’s mysterious forbears. I have my ideas, based on what I thought might be hints elsewhere.

  3. Before you end this series, you need to write “Irritatingly Familiar”, a book about just how irritating familiars can be.
