in her wild youth, even to press a dainty slipper against a foot or two
under the dinner table. Miss Manners also believes that the sight of
people strolling hand in hand or arm in arm or arm in hand dresses up a

umbrellas at one another. What Miss Manners objects to is the kind of
activity that frightens the horses on the street ...
