I also liked some of the humor in this novel. How Florentino was much sought after at the Arcade of Scribes for his talent at writing love letters, yet could not write a simple business letter to save his life. How Fermina demands that she never be made to eat eggplant before agreeing to marry Juvenal Urbino, yet later this becomes one of her favorite dishes. That Urbino's talking parrot that for years speaks the most inappropriate things at inopportune moments, yet on the occasion of the visit of the President of Columbia for the purpose of hearing the amazing parrot speak the parrot cannot be induced to speak a word.
