Today is the 19th and this is my 19th post! Also, I am here with the answers to my First Sentence Game, which I posted a few weeks ago. If you have not seen it, click HERE to see it. Five points per right guess. 2 for half a guess. A total of 50 points could be earned. Okay! Here we go!

2. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way--in short, the period was so far like the like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil in the superlative degree of comparison only.
