Well, Abby. it certainly looks like that's you holding hands with one of the two fellows you met at the Victorian mansion. Now I have to guess if it's Sam or Barker. Is that what you're making me do?
Or worse ... are you planning on keeping who it is from me altogether?
Seriously? Okay, ya asked for it. Take a good long look at what's happening to meee!
What?! Yeah, no.
Inappropriate in the 19th century ... inappropriate ... inappropriate.
Did I forget to mention innappropriate?
Geesh, relax, will ya? It was just a kiss in the sitting room of Charlotte's bedroom. I mean, he smelled so great, like he had on cologne or sumthin'. What was I suppos'd to do?
No wonder you're getting so much grey hair.
Oh, yeah, that. Well, I mighta said "sooo hot" when I bumped into him on the staircase cause he had a rilly cool stubble of beard on his face.
But then he followed me into Charlotte's room to open a window for us 'cause he thought I meant that the whole mansion was hot ... you know, like, hot 'cause of the sun and stuff.
And that's when I mighta said he smelled good when he reached past me to open the window and we were, like, really close. Get it?
Yeah. I get it, Abby. Believe me, I get it much too well.
By the end of the 1800s, physical appearance for a man will play an ever important role in his romantic attractiveness.
A properly groomed and full beard or moustache will be considered a sign of strength and potency, and an indicator of fertility.
