HOW MANY DARLINGS DOES IT TAKE TO GET TO THE CENTER OF ATTENTION?


did you know that some people believe in apaches?

I’ve always wanted to be an orphan.

 

a barrel is an incredible gown for one’s official coming out.

very brave girls are able to cry realistically,

as though they have seen great and terrible horrors.

 

this is the mark of a winning child. also,

extraordinarily bouncy curls and/or wide-set eyes.

 

voices, they can dub but courage – they cannot.

 

chivalry isn’t lost, not even on the irish.

any good man would be happy to give a girlchild his bed.

see, there are some things even a lint brush can’t fix.

like, mutton sleeves accompanied by a barbershop quartet.

 

slimhipped fillies are just stuffing and singing.

all ingénues are born with the ability to change keys on command.

 

if you give me a present I will be your very best friend.

indians always treat their women with a superior air

and their women seem to like it.

there are just some things you can’t put up with.
