Did you know?
The Language of the Flowers was a popular method to express feelings where words might be improper, but did you know other means of doing so? Some ladies used their parasols, as well as their fans, gloves, and hankies to flirt with a gentleman (or alternatively, tell them to shove it!). — Bree ( Submit your own)

This boy, then. He wasn't new. Wasn't one of the worst people in the common room, those rotten rich boys - like Mr. Jailkeeper - who could not fathom a world beyond their own farts. Was a good working class lad, so he'd heard. Had a bit of a weird looking face, and a bit of a weird thing for preaching. Still.Aubrey Davis in The Under-Sofa

Dear "In Want of Companionship",

Your mother would surely despair of a companionship marriage for one so young, but I find your resolve admirable. I fulfill many of your requests: academic, established, logical, and ambitious with regard to my career--I suppose this is what has driven me to write you, though in truth there was something in your letter which called to me.

I, too, know what it is like to be compared to others and found wanting; as it is, my mother would be delighted to know that I replied to your letter, as she has begun to pester me incessantly about marriage.

I would very much like to hear more about your career interests, if you do not mind. Do you wish to work in academia? Or in a Ministerial capacity?

Sincerely,
Jaded Academic
