One of my fave movie lines


"She is tolerable, but not handsome enough to tempt me."
(From Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen)

I wonder what my reaction would be if someone said that about me (within earshot)...

Would I....
Sit demurely and pretend I hadn't heard...
Jump up and gracefully punch him in the nose....
Rise and brush disdainfully by him....
Smack him violently with my beautiful fan.....
Spill my cup of red punch all over his white silk breeches
(by mistake of course...that was a lie).....
Discreetly kick the back of his knee as I walk by
and cause him to sit down in a very undignified position....


What would you do?
