@RK Fire I've heard about this technique where you wait ~9 months and then it pops out and you look between its legs.
@TheMissus GWTW's detailed description of clothing enabled me to impress my husband with my knowledge of the uniform of the (apparently fairly arcane) Zouaves -- someone in Atlanta in GWTW marries "a little Zouave". Husband's hobby is painting miniature metal military figures, and he informed me he had just ordered Zouaves. I was like, "The French ones with baggy pants and fezzes?" As I usually wear a blank expression when he gets excited about this or that tiny metal army, he was astounded.
My copy of GWTW opens automatically to this passage. Sigh!
@dontannoyme Bombazine is a fancy weave of cotton. My Aunt Louise (technically, my father's aunt) was born in 1896 and has since passed away. She always used to warn us "Don't spill anything on your fine bombazine," before we went anywhere special. For years, I thought bombazine was old-fashioned slang for boobs.
She also had a vase that if you looked at it from the top, looked like a vulva. The 1920s were really Roaring and I had no idea.
Come to think of it, she probably did mean bombazine as slang for boobs.
No showing your bosom before 3 o'clock is a rule I always try to live by.
@Story #2 no need to see around the racism y'all
@Olivia2.0 *Four dresses that are barbeque appropriate (even though one isn't really at all)
@Jane@twitter My thoughts exactly. Melanie would never be so catty or uncouth as to make such a remark.
@jenjenboben Yeah, like Melanie's gonna be "catty enough" to ever call Scarlett out on how completely awful she is to everyone all the time, never mind call the fashion police on her.
