I am late to the Finishing School party, but OH MY LANDS AND STARS, what a find!
In this particular missive entitled, “How to Faint in a Manner That Attracts a Certain Gentlemen,” ladies learn to properly flutter eyelashes and swoon without mussing one’s gown.
If only I had known these fine suggestions when I was attempting to attract the attentions of Mr. Hersteria! No, my mute, purposeful blinking while staring directly into his eyes was mistook as my having a paralytic fit.
Oh, we laugh about it now.
(Thank you to Jim for the lead!)
