Uhmmm...Hahahaha. You Romeo! Tell me in the evening how many girls have dropped their handkerschiefs in front of you, ok? Pick it up with your teeth!

I am just waiting for LiB to waltz in on his...cayak. Au secours!

In the meantime, we will throw an EF lake&sup party sometime soon when life and measures allow - you know how people do Yoga on a SUP, you should do Yodel on a SUP! (I will coin this later ).
LiB is not interested in picking up handkerchiefs, I am quite certain of that!

You are not derailing anything, au contraire! If anything, because I DO live my life according to strong honour, respect and gentleman's codes and because I feel at the moment dragged into a whirlpool of emotions completely alien to me, it is nice to be reminded to keep one's feet firm on the ground from time to time.
I certainly hope women's emotions are not completely alien to you, you are an English language teacher, no?
No worries, I can come up with another cliche movie - "What women want"..


But seriously, who can tell. It's your story. If I had to date again (now that is an alien concept to me too, I think it's entirely American) I'd probably be lost too. And I haven't even been married for that long as you were.

Take it easy, protect your feelings too....I think it's just common sense.

That's not Germanized. That would be Trumpized.
And the worst thing: I didn't even get it right.

What do you want me to be...Jack the Ripper??? When I say Victorian, I view more of a 19th century Highlander... if you want to go South of the border, a modern day Heathcliff, without so much of the dark side.

Heathcliffs are entertaining. Drama! There's always a dark side, darlin'. Wear it with pride.

Freudian slip huh, 3wishes.
I am somewhat worried, that my honorable name and reputation will get sullied and completely dragged through the mud. Mental note: Must re-assess priorities.

I hope that's the Scotish rolled one.

Insert it randomly in your Victorian antics, when you are wooing ladies in your French, ok? For added Healthcliff manliness (in Sc. accent).

More like Mr. Darcy, no? C'mon, you sound like a Mr.Darcy not a Heathcliff.

You'd make a bad Heathcliff....

Mr Darcy with a Scottish accent, albeit very soft...is it compatible?
