: Since we are into the subject of fashion, I do want you to be aware that I NEVER, but NEVer wear sleighbells that are not tiny and delicate to emphasize my slender, sylphlike figure and my delicate girlish features (stop laughing, Marcia, a little lie never hurt anybody now and then!). Ahem!---
>>Miss Marcia wishes to let you know that it is perfectly okay with her for you to go on living in your Fool's Paradise! Far be it from her to rain on anyone's parade...
: As to strategic positioning, obviously I would dress a bit differently for Bumppo's sleezy, flea-infested frontier dive than for JFC's elite environment of fine dining and subdued atmosphere (Motto: Stand back at least 10 feet from the swinging kitchen door at all times). I believe for JFC's the tinkling tintinabulation of tiny Bustle Bells is just right. Also, perhaps a silvery bell or two nestled in the shining folds of one's elaborate coiffure and sufficiently anchored to withstand occasional flurries of flying tablewhare or the odd airborne roast duck.
>>Please accept my apologies...Miss Marcia was under the impression that ALL you were going to wear was sleigh bells...now she sees that you will at least have on a BUSTLE, too. Much better taste, dearie.
: Bumppo's, on the other hand, requires something more on the order of those clangers called Butt Bells. Useful for calling in the fire brigade, locating the Kings Footsoldiers in a heavy blizzard or summoning the waiter for another tankard of Bumppo's original Mohawk Malt. We haven't seen bells like that used for fashion purposes around here since Grandmama Cooper's debutante ball, during which she stunned the colony by dancing to the Bell Bottom Blues right down the middle of the dinner table. Such a one for setting the social pace, was our Grandmama!
>>With an ancestor of this sort, no wonder you don't mind going out wearing nothing but bustle & bells! I would say it's apparently an unfortunate genetic trait, but genes haven't been discovered yet!
: Looking forward to seeing you at the meeting. Afterwards, perhaps we can get together for a cup of tea and an objective evaluation of everyone's fashionable outfits. OH, how I love a good cat session! Dear, dear me, just think of it.
>>Oooooh, yes! Miss Marcia would be willing to overlook your somewhat unorthodox attire for the opportunity of a real good Meow Session, wherein we could sharpen our claws by verbally shredding everyone else's togs! Hiss!!! After all, one cannot go through life doing NOTHING but stirring the fuu-uuudge pot and being well-mannered and polite. What fun is that?
Looking forward to Hissin' & Dissin',
I remain, Yours Most(ly) Graciously,
