  1. And when you have nothing to say, stay silent! I was reminded of this dictum by dipping into the Fay Weldon book – I think it’s called “On First Reading Jane Austen” which came into my hands earlier this week. I was astounded to discover that it had been a gift – to me – from my sister. This leads me to another memory – in Dorothy Sayers – wherein Harriet advises Lord Peter’s nephew to fall silent. Such a gracious way of saying shut up. If I recall, the quote should be, “Fall silent at once!”
    Even better.
    One cannot but have curiosity about what you could have said which was not printable.

  2. Nautilus3, I wonder what happened to make the only commentary be unprintable! Usually Allegra can find some euphemism for expletives which is not only acceptable and understandable but entirely entertaining.
