ah, bertie. such a scamp. an observant scamp, with a flair for nutshell, spot on descriptions of character, but a scamp, nonetheless.

I've always wondered if there is something genetically inherent in a redhead to be like this, or whether it's a habit ingrained from a lifetime of people just expecting that one will pop off at any given moment. One tends to try to rise to the expectations of those around you, how disappointing for them, really, if one didn't give them what they were so clearly looking for.

I can't tell you how many places I have appeared over the years where people were instantly terrorized of me and all I had done was say hello. They hadn't even witnessed me going off on someone else, but somehow, they were positive I would be doing it any second now, and for probably no discernible reason whatsoever!

Personally I find this sort of prejudice rather hurtful to my weak and tender fee-fees. sniff

Minstrel Hussain Boy,
I have to agree with you about Bertie. So delightfully amiable, yet so deserving of a good smack.

A scamp? Perhaps, but one of his aunts used an even more descriptive phrase: "Bertie! You foul blot on the landscape!"

Linkmeister

Ah. Courtesy of B&N's excerpting capability: from Chapter One of the very book Lance cites, here's the exact quotation I was thinking of. Aunt Dahlia, responding to Bertie's greeting: "And a rousing toodle-oo to you, you young blot on the landscape"

And Aunt Dahlia was the one who was fond of him! I don't think she would ever call Bertie "foul", though. That was more Aunt Agatha's style.
