Bertie Discusses Modern Life

Greetings! I, Bertie the Beau, hope you are all in the midst of enjoying your End-Week.

I have some more Questions for you. I do hope someone here can help me with them.

1) Why do Waiters (who are called this, I surmise, for the simple reason that they make one wait for them) clean the table, which one never touches (unless one is a very irritating small child) (that, by the by, is an example of Redundancy), but not the seats, which are inevitably covered with bits of food and rubbish, which then ruin one’s clothing?

2) If a Bat-Man is a man resembling a Bat, and a Spider-Man is a man resembling a Spider, then what precisely is a Door-Man? A Cow-Boy? A Soccer-Mom?

3) If Peter Petrelli (one of the Beautiful People on the Tele-Vision Entertainment entitled “Heroes”) possesses the power of Invulnerability, how did he get his Scar?

And does it make him look more handsome, or less?

As always, I look forward with delight to your answers about modern life — which, although they do not always lessen my confusion, never fail to bring me much amusement.

Your Humble Servant, and always Exquisite,

Bertram St. James

About Elena Greene

Elena Greene grew up reading anything she could lay her hands on, including her mother's Georgette Heyer novels. She also enjoyed writing but decided to pursue a more practical career in software engineering. Fate intervened when she was sent on a three year international assignment to England, where she was inspired to start writing romances set in the Regency. Her books have won the National Readers' Choice Award, the Desert Rose Golden Quill and the Colorado Romance Writers' Award of Excellence. Her Super Regency, LADY DEARING'S MASQUERADE, won RT Book Club's award for Best Regency Romance of 2005 and made the Kindle Top 100 list in 2011. When not writing, Elena enjoys swimming, cooking, meditation, playing the piano, volunteer work and craft projects. She lives in upstate New York with her two daughters and more yarn, wire and beads than she would like to admit.
