Sei Shōnagon Quotes: 14 Hateful Things Someone Has Suddenly

14. Hateful Things: Someone Has Suddenly Fallen Ill And One Summons The Exorcist. Since He Is Not Home, One Has To Send Messages To Look For Him. After One Has Had A Long Fretful Wait, The Exorcist Finally Arrives, And With A Sigh Of Relief One Asks Him To Start His Incantations. But Perhaps He Has Been Exorcising Too Many Evil Spirits Recently; For Hardly Has He Installed Himself And Begun Praying When His Voice Becomes Drowsy. Oh, How Hateful!
