  1. Emma would never do anything so crass as to get a woman drunk in order to seduce her. I suspect Harriet would willingly come to her bed while entirely sober, but that wasn’t an option.

  2. Yes, Pointless Pedant is absolutely right (probably as usual). The misspelling of brooch ruined the whole question for me. Delete and start over!

  3. Yes, it was a mistake to start that subject.

    Open the subject? Initiate the subject? There’s a word I’m fishing for here…

  4. Brooooooooooooooooooch! People who don’t know how to spell that also have “crape” myrtles in their backyards and drink their own bathwater!
