Lady Lynda recalls her first Etiquette Talk
Lynda May Hoffenfetter Toze smiled joyfully as she remenesced how she filled with glee. She recalled how her tour was finally commencing. She was delightfully pleased she made a concerted effort to start her teachings was here. The ruffians of society would be saved by her elucidations. It would be a fait accompli. Her fervent dedication, prep would soon pay off.
This was moment she was waiting for. Soon she would make her grand entrance to the dilapidated peons of society. Lady Lynda told herself she would gently, genteelly elucidate proper manners. Never, no matter how ignominious, she would never impugn them.
To do so, she dogmatically reminded herself would the height of rudeness. Plus it was intolerably insensitive. It wasn’t their fault they were ignorant. It was her duty to teach them. Not to harangue the ignorant crowd.
Soon was the moment. She would momentarily make her grand entrance onto the stage. Her flowing lemon yellow chiffon dress she so tastefully wore would complement her tasteful gold and garnet jewelry. There Lady Lynda would instruct the people the way of correct etiquette. They would be boors no more.
It was at the Lula P. Dankwarth municipal Conference Center. It was in Savannah GA. It would be at the grand ballroom. She wished she wasn’t feeling butterflies in her stomach. So much so it seemed as if an entire colony. She was glad she put on enough deodorant, antiperspirant and lightly dusted herself with lilac dusting powder. On her soft delicate hands, stylish white gloves. Oh yes she thought that would be the height of rudeness to let them see her sweat or even worse, emit a disagreeable odor. She would be a hypocrite.
Even so Lady Lynda was pleased her flowing chiffon outfit breathed in a most delightful manner. Now if only she could breath as delightfully. This was the moment of truth. It was do or well she realized the rest of the saying. She would appear to be a blithe, sophisticated spirit. But underneath she was feeling like a charlatan. She knew it was imperative she was up to the task. Momentarily she would seize the moment.
