The following quotation is from The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon Copyright 2001 All Rights Reserved. Chapter 43 Flirtations



“Aye, I’m up to my ears in Majors and Regulators and drunken maid servants, and you’re out in the stable canoodling wi’ the fop!”

I felt the blood rising behind my eyes, and curled my fists, in order to control the impulse to slap him.

“I was not ‘canoodling’ in the slightest degree, and you know it! The beastly little twerp made a pass at me, that’s all.”

“A pass? Made love to ye, ye mean? Aye, I can see that!!”

“He did not!”

“Oh, aye? Ye asked him to let ye try his bawbee on for luck, then?” He waggled the finger with the black patch under my nose, and I slapped it away, recalling a moment too late that “make love to” merely meant to engage in amorous flirtation, rather than fornication.

[> I just keep laughing this week. Taking these scenes alone gives me time to enjoy “canoodling wi’ the fop”. “Try his bawbee on for luck,then”. and with such indignation…… “waggled the finger with the black patch under my nose”. All these years later they still get me! -- Kathy in PA, Sat, April 13 2024, 10:57:39
