From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
Pip goes to dinner at Wemmick's house and it is better than Disney World. Seriously. It puts Cinderella's chateau to shame.
See, Wemmick has built his own castle in a part of town called Walworth. The "castle" is the size of a little house, except with a flagpole, a moat, and a drawbridge. What more could anyone want (besides a rooftop Jacuzzi and a whole box of popsicles)?
Wemmick asks Pip if he wouldn't mind meeting the Aged. Pip wonders if he's referring to a particularly stinky form of cheese.
Nope. It's Wemmick's father, a very energetic though completely deaf man.
The Aged loves to be nodded at, so Wemmick and Pip spend a good half hour nodding their heads at the Aged.
Apparently, Wemmick at home is very different from the Wemmick at the office, almost a completely different person.
