Hello, can you please tell me what this sentence means? The context is this, "The day before my departure was Sunday and I spent the afternoon at my parents' house. It never changes;a single lupine exhalation could reduce it to rubble." Thank you.

    Hello.:)

    We need your source and context/background, please. The reference however is clearly to the children's story The Three Little Pigs.


    The wolf in that story says: "Then I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house down".

    It is from " The Thirteenth Tale" by Diane Setterfield.
