well, what else should they say when you're buying "penthouse letters"?

oline said...

kid is a masculine signifier, yes? Much like scamp and bugger?

i only ask, because your story changes a bit if the register person is a man or a woman.

Huh - are the James Bond movies based on books? I didn't know that. Or are the books post-film?

Despite my Dad being a huge fan of the James Bond, I am almost wholly unacquainted with anything Bond-related. Except, when I was 11ish I used to babysit for this bugger whose favorite cartoon was "James Bond Jr." Which, I just found out, lives on on YouTube:

Oops, didn't link. The dulcet tones of the James Bond Jr. theme song will be available only to the highly motivated.

yes, dougo, kid implied young lad.

and there aren't enough opportunities to use the word "dulcet." makes me long for a dulcimer.
