Beatrice Ethel!  You Get Your Clothes On!

 Another Saturday evening entertaining callers to the Parlor. 

Week after week she sat off to the side and watched her older sister receive potential suitors.

It was just so ridiculous!  Tall ones.  Short ones. Those with means. Penniless wanna bes!  They all came. 

And every week Mother made her dress up in layers of clothing that literally choked the life out of her lungs. 

But the worst part of the event, was listening to her sister carry on for hours after her guests had left.  Really!  They were just boys!

She just didn’t see the point of all of this and decided when it was time for her to be presented to Victorian Society, she would make sure she was unavailable.
