I don舗t want to get married to anyone yet,舗 Mort added. 舗 舖I wouldn舗t marry you if you were the last man on the Disc,舗 Ysabell said sweetly. At least I don舗t look like I舗ve been eating doughnuts in a wardrobe for years,舗 he said, as they stepped out on to Death舗s black lawn. At least I walk as if my legs only had one knee each,舗 she said. 舗 Ysabell nodded. 舖On the other hand, my ears don舗t look like something growing on a dead tree. 舗 舖A good word,舗 she conceded thoughtfully. 舗 Mort glanced sideways at the top of Ysabell舗s dress, which contained enough puppy fat for two litters of Rottweilers, and forbore to comment.

Its customers had a certain rough-hewn respectability -they might murder each other in an easygoing way, as between equals, but they didn舗t do it vindictively.
