Excerpt

r te le dire: la semaine dernière, ta cousine a fait dire une messe à ton intention... pour que vous tourniez bien, Monsieur...

Il se lève, se promène de long en large et s'écrie en roulant au plafond des yeux de poisson frit:

--Dieu, qui voit le fond des coeurs, l'a sans doute exaucée!

C'est bien possible, mais je ne serais pas fâché de placer un mot.

--Mon oncle...

--Mais, malheureux! tu as donc oublié jusqu'aux lois fondamentales de la politesse? Tu ne sais donc plus qu'il est inconvenant de couper la parole aux personnes qui... qui... Tu verras, quand tu seras soldat, si tu interrompras impunément tes chefs! Ah! tu en as besoin, vois-tu, de manger de la vache enragée!

Ma tante, qui vient d'entrer avec ma cousine, a surpris ces dernières paroles. Elle s'approche de moi.

--Tu t'es engagé? Tu vas être soldat? Eh bien! entre nous, mon ami, ça ne te fera pas de mal de manger de la vache enragée.

--Ça lui fera même beaucoup de bien, appuie ma cousine, avec un petit air convaincu.
