Confession time, people: I have never read Alice in Wonderland. I’ve never seen the movie despite liking Johnny Depp’s movies.
With that being said, brace yourself for the most boring post you’ll ever see on any subject.
How did the actual text of A Mad Tea Party contrast with my perceptions of what I thought it’d be about? It didn’t. I didn’t have any expectations prior to reading it.
Was there anything that surprised me? Yes, two things actually. First was the mention of wine when I had assumed they had drank tea and the second was how incredibly boring it was. It really makes me wonder where the acclaim for this work comes from. I’m sure Ms. Vance will crucify me for this, but I hated it and couldn’t get past how MUCH I hated it while reading it all the way through.
