I am so annoyed right now that an American Ph.D can’t tell the difference between presumptive and presumptuous and doesn’t know enough to check.
Cuffs is the name of the story I’m working on. It’s a play on words – you can’t put a sixer in cuffs no matter how hard you try, but that’s poor Lara’s task. Also, mammals cuff their youngsters when they’re being little mixers, and although the two siblings are the same age (okay, microseconds apart….) Lara is definitely the elder in this situation. Progress.
I went back to sleep…..
