"I don't know what to do!" (1) cried Scrooge, laughing and crying in the same breath; and (2) making a perfect Laocoön of himself with his stockings. (3) "I am as light as a feather, I am as happy as an angel, I am as merry as a schoolboy. I am as giddy as a drunken man. (4) A merry Christmas to everybody! A happy New Year to all the world. Hallo here! (5) Whoop! Hallo!"
He had (6) frisked into the sitting-room, and was now standing there: perfectly winded.
"There's the saucepan that the gruel was in!" cried Scrooge, starting off again, and going round the fireplace.
"There's the door, by which the Ghost of Jacob Marley entered! There's the corner where the Ghost of Christmas Present, sat! (7) There's the window where I saw the wandering Spirits! It's all right, it's all true, it all happened. (8) Ha ha ha!"
Really, for a man who had been out of practice for so many years, it was a splendid laugh, (9) a most illustrious laugh. (10) The father of a long, long line of brilliant laughs!
